Category Search - What is a 'Category Search'?

The Category Search matches the exact letters you type in with keywords in our 1,000+ major category / categories. Then returns a list of links to the categories with groupings of resources.

The Category Search helps you determine what sections of the library to use, not to the specific resource. We did this for many reasons. Just as we use experts to determine what is relevant for the LAD Libraries instead of algorithms & robots; we know you can evaluate what you want better than an algorithm. The Category Search points you in the right direction to quickly find the right area for you. We also did not want to fall in the trap of listing all of our resources as so many search engines do, which is very frustrating.
