Find Books on Criticism

When searching in the CSM library book catalog, you can limit your results to criticism by using the subject heading:

-- Criticism and interpretation

Include the author’s or director's last name before the two dashes.

Example: Shakespeare -- Criticism and interpretation

Capitalization isn’t important, but be sure to include the two dashes between the author name and the subject heading – it won’t work otherwise!

When you have your search terms entered, click the "Subject" icon to search for the subject heading you just entered.
