On most records (with a few exceptions), you'll find citation information concerning the author, title, publisher, and place and date of publication--information that you'll use in your bibliography or works cited page of your research.
In addition to the citation information, you'll also find subject headings. These headings are searchable, which means that if you click on them, you get a list of results of all the items in the catalog that have had that subject heading assigned to them. This is one way to find additional items focused on a particular topic.
