Books & More

To find any items (books, videos, sound recordings, Wii games, and more) owned by the library, search LUCIA. Try Title begins with, Author, Subject begins with or Keyword Anywhere searching.

Title begins with
These searches will let you see if we own an item whose title you already know. This search works for titles of books, titles of scores, titles of movies, titles of journals (but not individual journal articles) and more.

Use this search to find works created by the person named. Be sure to enter the last name first.

Subject begins with
Try a Subject begins with search for an idea or concept like health or yoga or meditation. LUCIA will list other subject headings (and subheadings) which may be of interest. Not all words related to wellness will be subject headings; check the Library of Congress Authorities if you want more ideas.

Keyword Anywhere
In this type of search, LUCIA will look for the terms you specify anywhere in the important areas of the cataloging records, and display a list of those records. Try a search for a term like mindfulness. Try a search for a phrase by searching with quotation marks around the phrase, as in "health promotion". You can search for individual terms connected by logical operators like AND or OR such as health and women. A Keyword Anywhere search for Wii will find games in our collection.

Books are arranged on the library's shelves by Library of Congress Classification. This is a system which organizes materials by general subjects. Once you have a call number from searching LUCIA, see this guide to call number locations at Mudd and the library floor maps to find out where a book might be on the shelves.
