If you are researching a well-known photographer, search by his or her name (try last name first) to see if the Library owns an entire book on that person. If not, search by one of the broad subjects listed below, and check the indexes in the back of the books you find for your photographer's name.

Also think of specific historical events, places, people, or time periods that were subjects of newspapers or magazine articles documentaries.  Some subject headings examples are:

Abused women, Pictorial works
Jews, Europe, Eastern
World War, 1939-1945            
United States, History, 1961-1969
Cities and towns United States
Vietnamese Conflict


Subject headings may include the subheading "Portraits" or "Pictorial works" if the books are largely pictorial or photographic.  Try searching by those terms also, or combine them with another subject using "and," such as: Pictorial works and Vietnam.
