How to Find Central Asian Materials Using Subject Headings

A subject heading is a specific word or phrase used to find and organize books and articles by topic. Subject headings can be a great way to easily find things related directly to your topic.  When library materials are cataloged, they are usually given subject headings to make them more easily searchable by people interested in those subjects.

To see a list of all subject headings currently being used for Polish materials in the library catalog, you can choose Subject List from the drop-down menu of search criteria and type "Central Asia" or related terms.  This will give you a list of all subjects using these terms, and you can view the books or items associated with those subjects.

Here are a few examples of subject headings:


Collective memory--Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan--Social conditions--20th century
Asia, Central--History--20th century
Asia, Central--Politics and government--20th century
Soviet Union--History
