Searching Part or all of a Subject Heading

The subject headings in CLIO Catalog are context sensitive.  Where you place your mouse will determine how much of the heading is searched.   As you hover your mouse over the heading, text will display what will be included in your search.  This allows you to be as specific or general as you wish.   The headings are always read from left to right, so if you over over the center of the heading, everything up to that point will be searched.   Once you’ve searched on a subject heading, you can still add as many subject facets as you wish to your search.

If you have a question about searching CLIO, please comment below or use the Suggestions & Feedback form under the “Help” menu in the upper right corner of CLIO. Or, Ask a Librarian.
