Subject Term Searching

In addition to the browsing call number ranges below, it can be useful to search by subject terms. Folklore and related terms are Free Floating subject headings. This means that you won't necessarily find Folklore as its own subject term, but you will find it in combination with other subject terms for geographic regions, ethnic, national, or occupational groups, or social life and customs. Try a CONSORT Search for Subject Heading with Folklore.

Browsing for Folklore Books

Another option is to browse the STACKS for books.  You can do that by checking the library floor guide to see where you will find items for your subject. The library is organized by the Library of Congress Classification system and an outline of all the subjects can be found here.  For example, if you were interested in Classics, you might browse the following subject areas:
