Many of these tools and many additional resources can be found by searching Bobcat using subject headings. They follow this pattern:

  • Main subject heading -- (Period subheading) -- additional subheading, for example
  • German literature -- (18th century) -- history and criticism
  • German poetry -- (20th century) -- bibliography

Find videos using these hints.

Browse the stacks on the 8th floor, PT 1-4897 for literature, on the 4th floor, DD for history. Be aware however that there is material stored offsite and therefore not accessible by browsing anything except the catalog.
