Searching for Shakespeare

Works by and about William Shakespeare are very well represented in our library and beyond. The videos below will show you some basic tips for browsing and searching the library for these materials. Title and author searches are pretty straightforward, but you may want to try using:

  • subject headings (standardized "tags" that bring together work on the same subject)
  • browsing by call number
