My name is Brea Henson, Subject Librarian for Political Science. If you need any help, please don't hesitate to contact me at Brea.Henson@unt.edu.
The Libraries offer several study areas for both quiet and group study!
Browsing the Catalog
You can perform a subject search in theUNT Library Catalog, A Subject search is often a good starting point. Your results will display the number of titles we have under that general heading, and then under a series of sub-headings, which often focus on specific regions or related items. You can also perform keyword searches. The catalog will look for your search terms anywhere in the library item record (i.e. title, author, subject, notes), allowing you to perform a more targeted search.
When you have located the materials you are interested in, write down the call number and title to find the book on the shelves or present it to a staff person at the Service Desk for help.
