To find books, theses and serial publications, use
a PAC terminal and conduct a search for author, title or
subject. For the correct subject heading consult the
Library of Congress Subject Headings (located near the Sci.
Ref. Desk) or a science librarian. Some important subject
headings are CHEMISTRY, ORGANIC; ORGANIC COMPOUNDS;
KETONES; ORGANIC BASES, etc.
