Finding Natural History and Gardening resources in our catalog:
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.
Natural history -- South Carolina
Birds -- South Carolina
Botany -- South Carolina
Try to avoid being too specific when keyword searching. Sometimes the popular or alternative name for an individual, object, etc. is not the authorized name used in the catalog and will therefore not return some valuable resources to you. Be creative when searching and try to find the authorized name for whatever subject that interests you.
