Search Tip: Searching the VCU Libraries Catalog
To search for books, journals, and audiovisual materials held by the VCU Libraries, use the VCU Library Catalog. The catalog allows you to search by title, author, keyword and subject. To determine the appropriate subject heading for a topic, consult the lists of Medical Subject Headings or Library of Congress Subject Headings in the libraries.
For example, consider using the medical subject headings to search for Cancer resources in the VCU Libraries catalog: neoplasms, oncogenes, antineoplastic agents, radiotherapy, neoplasm metastasis, clinical trials, carcinogens, oncologic nursing, radiation oncology, and cancer vaccines.
To search for materials from other libraries, use the Worldcat database on FirstSearch.
