USP Library Catalogue and Other Book Sources
The online catalogs are used to find books in the library. You can look for a book by title, author, subject, or keyword.
Try searching the following sites using keywords to find books on your topic.
Finding Textbooks on Reserve for your Courses
Follow these steps to locate textbooks on closed reserve for your courses:
1. Go to the Laucala Campus library catalogue.
2. In the lefthand corner box under "Find Information" click "Closed Reserve."
3. Select your course from the dropdown menu (i.e. UU100) and click ok.
4. A list of your textbooks that are held at the main issue desk will display.
5. Write down the call number of the book you need and take it to the main issue desk. Items can be used for two hours in the library, and some items can be taken out overnight.
Searching Using Subject Headings
Subject Headings are assigned by the Library of Congress and may not be the same word you would use to describe your topic; if you're unsure of the subject heading for your topic, begin with a keyword search.
Some useful subject headings for Youth Work are:
Social Case Work with Youth
Adolescence and social work
Adolescence and society
Youth -- Oceania
Youth -- Pacific Area
Youth -- Oceania -- Social Conditions
Youth -- Oceania -- Economic Conditions
Youth in Development -- Oceania
Youth Development -- Oceania
Urban Youth -- Social conditions
