Q. Where can I find books in a certain language, such as Spanish?

The libraries organize their collections by topic, not language. The easiest way in which to locate material by a certain language is to search the library catalog by keyword, author, or subject and limit the results by that language.

Power searching tip:  You can use the advanced keyword search option in the library catalog and search for the wildcard * (an asterix).  Then use the limit by language to retrieve all items in that language, up to the maximum records retrieved of 32,000.
