Book searching

Beyond searching the Five Colleges combined library catalog, students should also search WorldCat, which will give them access to a database with over a billion holdings worldwide.

You can access WorldCat in three ways: using UMA WorldCat on the library home page, as a dedicated database search, and as a free, publicly-accessible site. However, the last will not function with Interlibrary Loan.

Some suggested subject headings include:

International economic relations
World politics
Civil society
Social justice
etc., etc.
Each of these headings contains numerous subheadings, highlighting these issues in countries, regions, etc.
