When entering a search in a database, try entering 2 or more keywords that represent the main concepts of your topic, connecting them with the word AND. For example: "global hunger AND food supply." When you find a relevant article, look at its subject headings and click on those for more articles.
MARQCAT is the Marquette Libraries catalog. Search for books on a topic using the 'Subject' search or the 'Keyword' search modes. You can also determine if MU Libraries' subscribe to a specific print or electronic journal by entering the title of the journal. However, you cannot use MARQCAT to search for articles within the journals.
Some suggested subject searches:
RESEARCH TIP: If you don't find your topic in the Subject search, try your terms as Keyword searches instead. A Keyword search will also pick up books that have a chapter on your topic For example, there is no subject heading for global hunger. But if you do a keyword search of those terms, you will find many books. If you find a book that is dead on, check its subject headings for more books on that topic.
