The Topical Classifications scheme is a hierarchical system of topical/subject categories created by Research Connections to assist in exploring our resource collection.

To view the subtopics under a particular topic, click on the orange plus sign beside the topic name. In many cases, you will also be able to click alongside a subtopic to reveal a more detailed set of subtopics. Clicking on the orange minus sign will close a list of expanded subtopics.

Click on the title of a topic or subtopic to view resources within that category.

Each resource may be classified in up to three categories.

For more information see the Definitions of Topics and Subtopics.
