Searching the catalogue

Use the Library catalogue to find books. For example:

  • Do a keyword search: trabecular bone
  • Click on "Books" from the left-hand side of the screen to limit your results to books.
  • Find a good book, e.g. Advanced bioimaging technologies in assessment of the quality of bone and scaffold materials (ebook) and click on the title. You will see a subject heading listed in the LC subject field: Bone - Imaging.
  • Click on the subject heading link to retrieve more books about that subject.

Search tips

Truncation symbol: * e.g. trabecula* will retrieve catalogue records containing the words trabecular, trabeculae, trabecula, etc.
