What is a Subject Search?

Subject searching is a useful way to access items in the library that are on the same or similar topic. Subjects are assigned to every item at the library making it easier to find material. Additionally, subject searching allows you to find items about an author/director or their work.

Search by Subject

To find books about ab author/director or their work, go to the library homepage and select the advanced search from the "Books & Media" tab. This will provide you access to search for books and other physical items in UBC Library.

To begin your search, set the drop down on the right side of the Guided Search Keyword search form to Subject. Type the name of the work or author in the search box and select the "Search" button.

If the name of the book, film, or dramatic production is more than one word (e.g. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings), change the middle drop down to "as a phrase".
