Juvenile Books

An easy approach to finding juvenile books in the UM LIBRARIES CATALOG is to use Keyword, the default option.  Below are some examples, searching in the Keyword box:

horse* and juvenile*
     This is a basic Keyword combination.  The asterisk (*) is a standard truncation symbol used to retrieve terms with variant endings.

horse* and s:juvenile*
     This combines a Keyword (horse*) and a Subject (juvenile*).

s:horse* and s:juvenile*
     This combines two Subjects.

The use of two Subjects can be especially effective, and can be used for even more precise retrieval, as follows:

s:horse* and s:juvenile fiction
     This will retrieve juvenile books of fiction.

s:horse* and s:juvenile literature
     This will retrieve juvenile books of nonfiction.

All of the above examples were performed within the Keyword search box.

Another approach to finding juvenile books is to browse by call number.  Because the juvenile collection is arranged by the Library of Congress classification scheme that is also used in the general collection, call number stems can be very effective in identifying subject areas.  To illustrate, if one wanted to find nonfiction juvenile books relating to "horses," one could browse JUVENILE QL 737 .U6 and JUVENILE SF 277 - SF 959, the same call number stems used in the main, non-juvenile collection.  An excellent resource used to match subject with call number stem is the following:  Classified Library of Congress Subject Headings, Part B:  Alphabetic List, Second Edition, shelved as READY REFERENCE Z 695 .U48 W55 1982 2.
