The first five databases are the primary English databases at the Proctor Library; the remainder are recommended. Find a reference librarian if you need help.

Subject Headings

These are examples of subject terms you can use in the library's catalog. Subjects are a better way to search than keywords because they describe what something is about. Remember, most English books will be located in the P sections of the library.
