When a researcher is looking for books in the library catalog, it is usually best to begin the search by using key terms also referred to as search terms or keywords. Search terms represent the main concept of the research topic. Without knowing keywords a researcher might find it difficult to find relevant books. Below is a small list of keywords you, as a researcher, may find helpful. 

The following is a partial list of subject headings related to Primates that can be used to locate books and other items in the FAU Libraries Catalog.
