The catalog provides bibliographic information on the majority of holdings in the Duke University Libraries.
Searching by Subject
Materials in the catalog are organized using Library of Congress Subject headings.
With subject searching, a good place to begin is with variations on the heading that begins with North Carolina - History. For example: North Carolina - History - 1775-1865. (LC)
There are many subject categories that can be combined with North Carolina to provide more specific references. For example: North Carolina - Education. (LC) or North Carolina - Politics and Government. (LC)
See Perkins or Lilly Library Reference for the multi-volume Library of Congress Subject Headings for other possible subject headings.
There are certain holdings that are not represented completely in the catalog. They are: microforms, materials from the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library, federal documents, and the University Archives. If you need assistance in identifying the libraries' holdings in these areas please ask a reference librarian.
