Monsters and Religion: An Awesome Alliance: Identifying Books

Use Books/Media in OneSearch! To Find Books

To identify and locate books and other Library resources about religion and monsters use the OneSearch! Advanced Search option to Search Library Resources.  Then click on the Books/Media radio button and enter your search words or phrases to search for books in print or electronic form available at Rod Library. To ensure that you use appropriate subject terms when you search Books/Media, use the Library of Congress Subject Headings thesaurus which is accessible electronically through the Classification Web (choose the LC Subject Headings option) or in the printed Library of Congress Subject Headings volumes located at Rod Library Reference Collection Z 695 L696. Sample headings include:      

  • Biotechnology -- Moral and ethical aspects
  • Cyborgs
  • Ghouls and ogres
  • Human beings -- forecasting
  • Internet addiction
  • Mind and body
  • Monsters
  • Monsters in art
  • Monsters -- symbolic aspects
  • Robotics
  • Shelley, Mary Wollstonecraft, 1797-1851. Frankenstein
  • Theodicy
  • Theological anthropology
  • Vampires
  • Zombies

A Keyword search allows you to search for specific words that appear within the title, subject, or notes fields of the online records. Combine your search words with "religio*" to focus your results on publications examining the topic from a religious perspective, for example, “embod* and religio* (for embodiment and religion).  Keyword searching is a powerful feature of the Books/Media search, but a thorough search for information on any subject should include searches using relevant subject headings.
