If you click on one of the subject headings on the "Find Books" page and find too many books to look through (as you will with the subject "Modernism"), you may want to use the QuickSearch Advanced Catalog Search to limit your results to more precisely what you are looking for.
To get to the QuickSearch Advanced Catalog Search, click on the blue button on the right side of the screen.
Now, let's say you wanted to use the QuickSearch Advanced Catalog Search to retrieve all the books on the subject of "Modernism" that deal with "alienation." On the search screen, you would type "Modernism" in the first search box and would pull down the menu to the left of it and change it to "Subject." In the second box, you would type the word "alienation." You could leave the menu to the left of the search box set to "Keyword."
Then you would click "Search" to run your search.
