Searching for Books

As Art Education students, your research will likely require books on a range of subjects. The library catalog searches across collections at all of the different library locations.  The UT Libraries have print and electronic books for your use. You can search in the library catalog for both types of books. *  


Ways to search: 


Subject – Searching by subject allows you to retrieve all of the items in the catalog that contain a certain subject heading or "tag" 

  • Art-- Study and Teaching

  • Education 

  • Educational psychology 


 Author – Search by author's name (last name, first name) to see all of the works we have published by a specific individual 


Title – If you already know the name of a book, this is a quick way to check if the library has a copy. 


Keyword – If you have a topic or research interest in mind, you can search for the main terms or keywords to see the scope of what is in our collection.  

  • Art Education 

  • Museum Education 

  • Art Elementary Classroom


Catalog Features to Know About:


Pick It Up – Allows you to request items be sent to the library that is most convenient for you.
