UD items appear at or near the top of the results display. Material not held by the Library, labeled "WorldCat Libraries," can be requested via a link that automatically generates an interlibrary loan request form.

  • Place quotation marks around keyword phrases (e.g.,"techno fashion" or "journal of fashion marketing and management").
  • It is important to click either "View all formats and languages" or "View all editions" to obtain complete information about library holdings. Both links connect to the same page.
  • Boolean logic connectors (AND, OR) must be capitalized (e.g., "19th century" OR "nineteenth century").
  • Sample Subject Searches
    • "body image"
    • clothing africa
    • ​clothing AND "social aspects"
