Subject Terms and/or Headings are terms that are used to describe the content of an item. Searching by subject will bring you materials that are explicitly about that topic. You can use subject terms to view items that have also been "tagged" as being about a particular topic. Keep in mind, that subject terms and/or headings are pre-selected. When you're starting your research try using both broad and specific terms - this will help you discover different subjects that you can also search by.
A Keyword Search will search for any time a word or phrase is mentioned in the description and/or record of an item. Starting your research with a keyword search can help you find more relevant subject terms, which can help you narrow (or expand) your search results.
Using AND, OR, or NOT to combine your search terms, search for similar terms, or exclude terms can help you discover more relevant information on your topic:
Use "AND" to combine terms:
(women AND computer science)
Use "OR" to use similar terms:
(woman OR women)
Use "NOT" to use exclude terms:
(computer science NOT software)
