Finding Books and Journals

Library catalogs are used for two purposes. First, if you know exactly what you are looking for - an exact title or author - you can use the catalog to locate your material. This works for book titles and journal titles. Second, you can use library catalogs to discover material that might be helpful to you by doing subject and keyword searching. Here is a list of library catalogs you may want to use to find information about globalizing the curriculum and global studies. If you are not a member of the Illinois campus community, contact your local school or public library to see if they can help you obtain the material you need.

Some of the subject terms you might want to search for include:
