Searching other libraries can be very useful when trying to discover what is available in your area of research.

Subject Directories

Subject Directories organize Internet sites by subject, allowing users to choose a subject that interests them and then browse through the resources in that category. Subject directories do not, however, have links to every piece of information on the Internet and are much smaller than search engine databases since they are compiled by people rather than computer programs.

  • Academic Info Searching under “Subject Gateways—Humanities” provides links for religion, history, philosophy, etc
