How can I find fiction books in the library?
If you know the author or title, search our catalog (allecat) by those terms.
For fiction about certain subjects, it is harder. Fiction books are not generally clearly marked in our catalog. A keyword search on a topic plus "fiction" may work, but it will not find everything we have.
Here are two strategies you can use to find fiction on a specific topic.
Go to WorldCat (select it from this page: http://library.allegheny.edu/databases)
Search for the topic you are interested in and "fiction". Example: submarines fiction
Check the results for the notation "Allegheny" to see what we have.
Use EZBorrow to get anything you want that we don't have.
To find the most popular in a topic check the Fiction Catalog in the reference collection: R016.8, then search our catalog or EZBorrow by author or title.
