How to find books in the library

Finding Books in Agriculture

DELCAT - the Library Catalog

Using the DELCAT search box on the library home page, you can find all resources that are located in, or accessible from, the University of Delaware Library. You can also find resources found in other libraries worldwide that can be accessed online or transferred to our library via Interlibrary Loan. It can be searched simply, as one might use an online search engine, and then results can be manipulated using facets such as Author, Resource Type (articles, books, etc.), Date, or Subject.

Advanced Searching in DELCAT 

In the Advanced Search interface, you have more options in combining your search terms and in limiting your search to specific fields (Title, Author, Subject, etc.). 

Searching by subject can be very helpful to focus the results. Look at the subject headings listed in your results to find applicable terms. Below are a few examples of subject headings in agriculture:

* Agricultural development -- Asia

* Farm income

* Family farms

* Food industry and trade
