Here are tips to help you search the library catalog using Primo:
You won't just find books when you search the catalog. You also might find articles, reference sources, electronic resources (books you read on your computer) and films. Use the Resource Type filter on the side of the results page to select which types of items you want.
Because of the wide variety of topics that could be a good subject for a persuasive essay, there is no single call number to search under in the Library of Congress classification system. However, many social issues -- such as homelessness, alcoholism and homosexuality, to name just a few -- fall under H, which is designated for the Social Sciences. But if your topic produces a call number that falls outside of the H class, don't be alarmed.
If you find a book that you'd like to check out, be sure to write down the call number - it should look something like this: HV 4708 .E93 2009.
Unsure where to find the H section or any other LC class? Ask a librarian.
