Searching for literature by ethnic group

All Formats

Catalyst offers several different ways to search for materials. The most basic is keyword searching, where a keyword or phrase is used to discover materials. Keyword searches mine the text, title, and other important fields to find matches.

Examples of keyword searches:

  • Hmong migration US
  • Latino migration United States.
  • Somali migrants US

Another way to search Catalyst is by following the subject headings. Each monograph (scholarly book) in Catalyst is assigned different subjects that describe the content in a simple phrase. You can follow the subject headings in Catalyst by clicking on a subject from within a book result (item record). Subjects headings in Catalyst records are in blue, hyperlinked text.

Example subject headings:

  •  Somalis -- Migrations
  • Somali American teenagers
  • Refugees -- United States
