Using Library of Congress sub-divisions can lead to more precise searching. Here are some examples for Education:
--Study and teaching "If you could have only one subdivision for education topics --Study and teaching would be it because it serves both people wanting to learn a subject and people wanting to teach a subject. Use this terminology instead of the expected "teaching methods." EX: foreign language -- study and teaching
--Instruction and study
--Education "Refers to works on education provided for groups of people."
--Knowledge and learning "Used to describe the education, formal or informal, that an individual receives"
--Training of "For methods of instructing occupational groups 'to prepare them for employment'
TEACHING AND LEARNING
--Problems, exercises "'Compilations of practice problems or exercises'"
--Curricula "What to teach and plans for teaching it"
--Evaluation "Used to cover both the methods of assessment and the results themselves"
SCHOOLS (All levels)
--Alumni and alumnae

Document Delivery Service
The Document Delivery Service allows Fordham University faculty and graduate students to obtain email delivery of journal articles not available electronically through the Fordham databases but which are available in print in the library.
This service was established to allow faculty, and now students, to request and receive research materials with proper copyright clearance via their Fordham email accounts.
