Search hints

  • Searching for the words "arts administration" is an easy way to retrieve links to UW-Madison theses on that topic 
  • For other topical searches, Library of Congress subject headings prefer the word "management," for example:
       arts -- management
       arts -- [location] -- management  (as in: Arts--United States--management) 
       museums -- management
       symphony orchestras -- management
       dance companies -- management
  • Start your search with keywords that describe the major concepts of your research topic, then examine subject headings assigned to relevant books for hints on alternative terminology
  • Once you discover productive search terminology in the local UW-Madison catalog, use the same searches in WorldCat to determine if additional materials are available via interlibrary loan
