Search Strategies

Using the catalog to find Special Collections' architectural resources

It is rare for a single subject or keyword search to successfully pull up every resource available at the College of Charleston Libraries on a given topic. Be prepared to conduct several different searches using the online catalog.

Subject search:
Architecture -- South Carolina -- Charleston
Charleston (S.C.) -- Buildings, structures, etc.
Excavations (Archaeology) -- South Carolina -- Charleston
Historic buildings -- South Carolina -- Charleston
Architecture, Domestic -- South Carolina -- Charleston

Keyword search:
Be mindful of being too specific when keyword searching. Sometimes the popular or alternative name for a building is not the authorized name used in the catalog. The popular name may not appear in a catalog record and therefore that record will not show up in a keyword search of the popular name. 

For example:
Popular name: Green Car
Authorized name: Electric Car

Popular name: The Circular Church
Authorized name: Independent or Congregational Church of Charleston, South Carolina.
