Omni and Subject Headings

Try using subject headings in your search instead of keywords. Subject headings help you find relevant items on the same topic. Searching by subject heading can often yield better results than searching by keyword. 

In Omni's Advanced Search, change the pull-down box on the left from Any field to Subject. 

Then change Material Type to Books & eBooks.


Examples of subject headings: 

Harris, Lawren

Picasso, Pablo, 1881-1973 - Exhibitions

Art, Modern - 20th century

Painting, French - 19th century

Modernism (Art)

Indian Art - Canada
