Searching for The Beatles

 “The Beatles saved the world from boredom.”   
                                      -- George Harrison
                                                                          Beatles Museum, Liverpool, UK

When searching for books, eBooks, or media items about The Beatles in CCAC Library's online catalog, you can search by using either a quick "words or phrase" 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.

There are many search terms you can use in order to find a variety of books, eBooks, and media items about the Beatles depending on your topic or interest. Here are just a few to get you started:


Beatles and music

Beatles and influence

Beatles and youth culture

You can also search by individual members of the group.  Examples:
Lennon, John;         McCartney, Paul
