Five College Library Catalog

5 College Library Catalog

Note that subject searching isn't always straightforward. Try a KEYWORDS ANYWHERE search to find a few relevant titles, for example: guarani and bolivia. Then click on the subject headings on those records to conduct a more comprehensive subject search.

Note that there are usually many different ways to search a concept, for example, birthing practices:

  • Birth customs
  • Childbirth
  • Obstetrics - Social aspects

Books Outside of the Five Colleges


  • Use WorldCat to expand your search for books, theses, etc. beyond the Five College area.
  • Use the SC Links button sclinks within WorldCat to access and populate the interlibrary loan forms.
  • Watch for items that are owned by only one library; such unique material is often not obtainable via interlibrary loan.
