Illinois has access to over 40 Collections. The Collections drop-down menu looks like this:
Each collection has different facets to be used for browsing. A facet is like a category, and it is often divided into subcategories. The more facets you click on, the narrower the results. Below is a screenshot of LGBT Thought and Culture.
If you select "Series/Periodicals," you will see a screen with this menu of facets for further refining your search.
You can browse the collections by Discipline (or sub-discipline). Disciplines and sub-disciplines are broader than collections. Each discipline or sub-discipline draws material from one or more collections, and there is overlap among some of the disciplines.
To find out which collections are included in a particular discipline or subdiscipline, select one of them and navigate to it. Pictured below is the page for the discipline Diversity. You can see what collections are included within that discipline. Also, the discipline and sub-discipline pages always feature Editor's Selections.
