An easy way to start searching the Library catalog is to do a keyword search for words that describe your topic. You may need to experiment with keywords to find ones that work for your topic.

Keyword Searching

Physical Therapy Connecting Word Body Region, Age, Disease, Condition, Technique, etc.
physical therap* OR rehabilit* AND knee
physical therap* OR rehabilit* AND pediatric* OR paediatric*
"physical therap* OR rehabilit* AND stroke
physical therap* OR rehabilit* AND hydrotherapy
physical therap* OR rehabilit* AND document*

See the Journals section of this guide for further explanation of the use of parentheses, quotation marks, asterisks * and connecting words. Keyword searching in Journal databases sometimes differs from searching in our COD catalog.

Once you find some items, you can use subject headings to find other items that cover the same topic.

Subject Searching

Here are just a few of the many subjects assigned to Physical Therapy-related General Collection and the Reference Collection resources.

physical therapy medical rehabilitation
physical therapist assistants medicine, physical
physical therapy -- documentation sports injuries -- treatment
thermotherapy hydrotherapy

Call Number Searching

Another strategy is to search by call number. Health-related materials are shelved in the "R" section of libraries that use the Library of Congress classification system.

Physical Therapy books are located in several call number areas.

RD792 – RD811 Orthopedics Surgery, Physical Rehabilitation
RM695 – RM893 Physical Medicine. Physical Therapy
RM930 – RM931 Rehabilitation Therapy
RM950 Rehabilitation Technology

Some rehabilitation books are located in other areas of the "R" section if they deal with specific age groups (ie. pediatric rehabilitation is found in the RJ section). Physical therapy books may also be classified according to specific regions of the body (i.e. knee or back) or by disease/condition (i.e. therapy for stroke). Use the Library catalog to locate the call number areas for these types of physical therapy resources.

There are two locations for "print" or physical material (videos or software) in the C.O.D. Library: the reference collection (items don't leave the Library) and the general stacks (items that you can take home). Library staff members will be happy to help you find books in either section--just ask!

Reference Materials

Reference materials are well indexed, up-to-date, concise, and highly credible. They provide overviews, definitions, specific information (such as causes & symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, prognosis, etc) or addresses. Types of reference books include: directories, dictionaries and encyclopedias, basic health books (describing diseases and conditions), and drug resources. Since you cannot normally take these materials home, remember that you will have to photocopy, or write down the information that you need. Some reference materials are available full text, online via our databases. Below are some examples of the types of reference books found in the C.O.D. reference collection.

Some of these resources are designed for consumers (such as the Johns Hopkins or Mayo Clinic health books), some for health students and consumers (the Gale Encyclopedia series), and some for health professionals (Cecil or Harrison's), so the type and level of information differs to suit each audience. Some reference works are available in Spanish language versions.

Keyword Searching

An easy way to start searching the Library catalog is to do a keyword search for words that describe your topic. You may need to experiment with keywords to find ones that work for your topic. For complex searches (e.g. scanning modality AND body region) use the advanced search screen (linked underneath the default catalog search screen)

Scanning Modality Connecting Word Body Region
mammog* AND breast
MRI OR magnetic resonance imag* AND abdomen
xray* OR x-ray* OR radiogra* AND chest
PET-CT AND lung
sonogra* OR ultraso* AND superficial
sonogra* OR ultraso* AND abdomen

See the Journals section of this guide for further explanation of the use of parentheses, quotation marks, asterisks * and connecting words. Keyword searching in Journal databases sometimes differs from searching in our COD catalog.

Once you find some items, you can use subject headings to find other items that cover the same topic.

Subject Searching

Try these subjects to browse Diagnostic Medical Imaging resources.

breast radiography radiography, medical
diagnosis, radioscopic tomography
diagnostic imaging tomography emission
diagnostic ultrasonic imaging ultrasonic imaging
magnetic resonance imaging ultrasonics in obstetrics
radiotherapy x rays

Call Number Searching

Another strategy is to search by call number. Health-related materials are shelved in the "R" section of libraries that use the Library of Congress classification system. Diagnostic Medical Imaging books are located in several call number areas. For books dealing with examination & diagnosis (including radiography) look within the call number range RC 71-78.7. A large amount of imaging books are located in the RC78.7 range.

Some imaging books are located in other areas of the "R" section if they deal with specific age groups (ie. pediatric imaging is found in the RJ section and fetal imaging is located in the RG's). Imaging books may also be classified according to specific regions of the body (i.e. head and neck or chest) or by body system (circulatory system or digestive system). Use the Library catalog to locate the call number areas for these types of imaging resources.

Location & Ability to Check Out or Use In-Library

There are several locations for "print" or physical material (videos or software) in the C.O.D. Library.

  • Items that can be checked out and taken home:
    • Circulation Desk Books (kept behind the circulation desk for security) and the General items (located on the Library's upper floor) are available for regular check out or in-Library use.
  • Items that are in-Library use only (but can be scanned or photo-copied):
    • reference collection (located on the main floor of the Library) and Reserves items (the DMI reserves collection is located on a moveable cart at the upper floor reference desk).

Library staff members will be happy to help you find books--just ask!

Tips for Researching Shakespeare

The sheer amount of literature critiquing the bard can become overwhelming to new Shakespeare researchers. Don’t be alarmed when a search for Shakespeare turns up 33,000 hits in the COD catalog. Instead, focus on refining your search using the tips and tricks listed below.

Shakespeare at the Library

Search the Catalog

Use the Library Catalog to find books/media on Shakespeare. When searching for criticism, use AND to combine search terms. Start with three main concepts - Author, Text, and Topic. For example, if you are interested in the role of prophecy in Macbeth your Search Statement would be: Shakespeare AND Macbeth AND Prophecy. Play around with different combinations of these three search terms: Shakespeare AND Macbeth, Shakespeare AND Prophecy, Macbeth AND Prophecy. For longer titles like The Merry Wives of Windsor or A Midsummer Night's Dream use quotes around the title. Here are a few sample searches:

If you are looking for a specific text, i.e. a copy of The Taming of the Shrew, use the Catalog to search by title and author.
