Searching using Subject Headings

Subject headings describe the main subjects or topics covered in a book.  All print material is labeled with Library of Congress subject headings to help users quickly find the subjects they need.  Browsing PittCat by subject heading is also a great way to quickly search for specific subject areas.  To search by subject heading, use the Browse feature, and select Library of Congress Subject Headings.

The general subject heading for 19th Century English literature is English Literature 19th Century. 

  • ENGLISH LITERATURE 19TH CENTURY

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

  • ENGLISH LITERATURE 19TH CENTURY  BIBLIOGRAPHIES
  • ENGLISH LITERATURE 19TH CENTURY  CRITICISM AND INTERPRETATION
  • ENGLISH LITERATURE 19TH CENTURY  HISTORY AND CRITICISM


To find materials on a particular author, use PittCat, click on Browse and select Name (By or About), to 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:

  • AUSTEN JANE
  • HARDY THOMAS
  • WILDE OSCAR CRITICISM AND INTERPRETATION
