When looking for items housed within the library, 'the catalog' is the primary means to search. For a topic such as the Vietnam War or the Tet Offensive, you can begin by entering either term into the search box and changing the drop-down box to Title/Subject. I suggest starting with 'Vietnam War' to keep your search fairly broad before narrowing it down.

This search returns 438 items. So, now is the time to narrow that down. In this case, since you only want books, look on the left sidebar for the option to limit by location. By choosing 'Circulating Collection -- Third Floor' you are limiting your results to books that you can check out.
