How to Search the CCAC Library Catalog

When searching for books, eBooks, or media items about the book Fahrenheit 451, the author Ray Bradbury, or any related information such as censorship in CCAC Library's online catalog, you can search by using either a quick "words or phrase" (aka keyword) search or a "subject" search.  
With a "words or phrase" search, you will get more results, but some may not apply to what you are looking for.   A "subject" search usually gives you the most relevant results.


You can also conduct an Advanced Search which will provide more search options for you.

There are many search terms you can use, depending on your topic or interest.  Here are just a few search phrases and subjects to get you started:
