Chinese sounds are not quite the same as English sounds, so there is more than one way to write Chinese words in English (or "Romanize") them. The Wade-Giles Romanization system says, "Tao Te Ching," while the Hanyu Pinyin more commonly used today says, "Daodejing," for example.
The Library of Congress provides a table that shows how different sounds look in different systems, specifically looking at the correspondence between Wade-Giles to Pinyin.
The University of California-Irvine provides the Pinyin Wade-Giles table.
This online Chinese Romanization Converter lets you type one English version of a Chinese word, and it will show you what the other common English version of that word is, so you can try searching things under that spelling, too.
These Library of Congress Subject Headings can be searched directly (MERLIN Subject Search) or added to a keyword search.
Note: Doing a MERLIN Keyword Search on taois* will find items containing the word Taoism, Taoist or Taoists, but not items containing the word Tao. However, a search for tao* will produce hits containing Taos, New Mexico, which you do not want. Try keyword searches like this: (taois* or tao) and heal* to find works on taoist perspectives on health and healing.
