Includes books throughout the library, as well as e-books, government documents, videos, and journal titles. Tips for searching:
Start with a keyword search for your topic. The fewer terms you require a catalog record to have, the more results you'll get.
It doesn't search for exact phrases unless you choose that option.
Use the subject phrase "pictorial works" to find books that are principally photos and images. The keyword phrase "chiefly illus." may also prove useful.
For more books with images, you can add to your topic keywords the abbreviation illus, for books added to the catalog before 1980 or ill, for books added since 1980. Such abbreviations are found on the Details field of the catalog record of books that have illustrations and will limit your results to only those books.
To get more precise with the abbreviation ill* you can use our catalog's Advanced Search and change one of your rows from "Any Field" to "other physical details" and enter ill* there to search only within the fields where metadata about illustrations has been entered and exclude mentions elsewhere of, for instance, illness.
Don't hesitate to browse the Loan shelves in a given subject area, but do use the catalog to find the right range of the shelves.
