Q. When I tried to search the library database for information on my topic, I didn't find many resources. What would you recommend that I do differently?

Answer

Because "Subject" searches the subject headings chosen by the Library of Congress, you may not find as much as you would using "Keyword." For example if you search "Barth's theology" as a subject, there are no matches. If you search "Barth and theology" as a keyword search, the search will yield 585 items. Also, if your search yields a few items that are good matches for what you need, clicking on the subject lines on the item record may lead to other relevant choices. Or you may even try looking at the bibliography in an item that is a good match for your search.
