Search TOPCAT for Books

When you want to find books in the Trent Library, search TOPCAT (the Library Catalogue). There's an online tutorial available to tell you about TOPCAT.

Use a keyword search to find items on a topic. For instance, to find books on early childhood education in Ontario you might search for "early childhood education" and Ontario

Terminology Notes:

TOPCAT uses LCSH (subject headings) in most records, to help us identify items of interest.

Sample education subject headings:

Blended learning
Early childhood education--Canada
Education--research--methodology
Educational technolgoy
Qualitative--research
Study and teaching

The study and teaching heading is particularly useful because you can combine that in a keyword search with any school specific subject, ie. mathematics and "study and teaching".
