Find Books

Subject Headings & Keywords

A wide range of subject headings can be used to find information about topics covered in courses; here are a few examples of relevant subject headings: 

  • Austria
  • Nicaragua
  • Colombia
  • imports
  • food
  • export marketing
  • international marketing (Keyword)
  • global marketing (Keyword)
  • Vietnam
  • Mexico
  • Russia
  • fasteners industry

Another approach is to use the keywords index to look for terms which may occur in titles and contents notes as well as in subject headings.

For example, this search - "doing business" and mexic*

  • retrieves records with the words doing, business, and words beginning with "mexic." (The asterisk allows retrieval of all words beginning with mexic, namely, Mexico, Mexican, etc.)
  • The keywords index also is good for finding specialized or new terms that might be in titles but not in subject headings.

Google Books

Portions of books are sometimes available through Google Books. The entire book may be in the Rod Library collection (look in UNISTAR), or it may be available through Interlibrary Loan.

Google Book Search

Interlibrary Loan

Books not available through Rod Library may be available through the Interlibrary Loan Service. Log on to this service, called ILLiaD, and provide details for the publications you would like to borrow.
