Fun with Pets: finding more with BiblioCommons

A recent library visitor was looking to find more books with ideas for things she could do with and for her pet.  The carousel below provides some examples of books available from our library.

Keyword searches within our Bibliocommons catalogue sometimes can overlook related nonfiction items, so it is always good to open the details screen for an individual title and examine the subject headings found in the lower right sidebar. Subject headings may suggest other descriptive phrases you would not of thought to use as search terms. Plus, these formally constructed tags are hyperlinks to other similar materials the catalogue. In this case, clicking on the links for, or repeating a search with found phrases such as “Dogs Food Recipes”, “Dogs Equipment and supplies”, and “Dogs Housing” retrieved more possibilities (cat lovers, please substitute “Cat” for “Dog” in the previous).
