Finding Books

In order to find foreign language and literature resources it is a good idea to start by searching for books.

A few suggested searches that you can use are: searching for the name of a language and the word literature or perhaps use the word fiction. Here are examples:

Spanish literature

To further narrow down your search you can also add other related key terms like: history and criticism, women and literature or other limiters such as 16th Century or 18th Century.

If you have a specific author in mind such as Federico Garcia Lorca, or a specific work such as Miguel de Unamuno's Niebla, you can search for these as well, either as a keyword, author, or title search.
