Browse By Topic

If you are not sure where to start in your research, the Browse by Topic feature is a great place to begin.

You may access it by clicking on the Browse by Topic link in the top navigation bar.

On the Browse by Topic page there is a left-hand navigation menu featuring the following categories in orange type:

  • Business and Economics
  • Environment
  • Education
  • Health
  • Land Use and Urban Planning
  • Crime and Law Enforcement
  • Community Life
  • Demographics/Statistics

Underneath these orange categories are lists of topics in blue linked text. If you click on one of these, you will get a list of all the resources KCResearch has about that topic.

The list of resources may be narrowed down further by clicking on more blue hyperlinks on the left-hand navigation menu, called facets. The number in the parentheses after each hyperlink indicates the number of resources in KCResearch on that specific facet.

At any time you may eliminate a facet by clicking the blue minus in parentheses (-) next to the facet on the left-hand side, or the facet links listed under “Current Search” at the top of the page of search results.
