Catalog Search Tips

Try exploring CrossSearch for print books, e-books, and articles related to your topic. For only books, you may want to try our basic catalog.  If Holy Cross does not have a book you need, you can use WorldCat to search for books from other libraries and then request these books through Interlibrary Loan.

Search tip: Search for books by either Keywords or Subject Headings. Start with a Keyword search and identify some relevant books. Then look at the subject headings for those books. You can follow the subject heading links in the catalog to find similar books, or you can use the terms in the subject headings to identify other keywords to try. 

Keyword Search: 
Shakespeare AND criticism

Subject Heading(s): 
Musical theater -- History.
Shakespeare, William, 1564-1616 -- Criticism and interpretation.
Theater -- Production and direction -- United States -- History -- 20th century.

Article Search Tips

Once you have the citation information for an article,  you can track it down directly through the eJournals portal.


All the information that you will need is in this citation. Can't find the journal in eJournals? Check the catalog to see if we have a physical copy in the library: 

If we don't have the journal -- or the specific issue of a journal -- that you need, you can request the article via Interlibrary Loan.
