Getting Started

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

A few suggested searches that you can use are: French literature and french fiction. To further narrow down your search you can also add history and criticism, women and literature or other limiters like 16th Century or 18th Century.

It is also useful to limit your search to items written in French and this can be done before an initial search or during your search. Before a search all you have to do is select "French" under the "Languages" drop down menu or during your search you can select "French" under the "Languages" heading.

For assistance you can call the CML Reference Desk at 401-874-4004, or you can visit the Curriculum Materials Library website and use our chat reference service or our email reference service.
