Searching using Subject Headings

Subject headings describe the main subjects or topics covered in a book.  All items in our catalog PITTCat Classic are labeled with subject headings to help users quickly find the subjects they need.  Searching by subject heading is also a great way to quickly search for specific subject areas.  To search by subject heading, select the Subject Heading limiter in the Search By: menu.

The general subject heading for this class could be:

  • ROMANTICISM
  • CHILDREN'S LITERATURE
  • AESTHETICS IN LITERATURE

Because the ULS has such a large collection, subject headings are often broken down into subheadings.  For example:

  • ROMANTICISM ENGLAND
  • ROMANTICISM ENCYCLOPEDIAS
  • CHILDREN'S LITERATURE, AMERICAN HISTORY AND CRITICISM


To find materials on a particular author, search the author’s name by last name first name.  For critical material on that author’s work, look for the subheading CRITICISM and INTERPRETATION.  For example:

  • CHANDLER RAYMOND
  • JAMES HENRY
  • DICKINSON EMILY CRITICISM AND INTERPRETATION
