New German Books in our Library

We have the complete Chronicles of Narnia written in German!

Browse the shelves

Sometimes wandering the shelves is useful. If you can find one book on a topic, others like it will be sitting on the same shelf.  Be sure to look in both the Reference collection on the first floor for general helps like encyclopedias, and in the circulating collection on the second floor for books you can take with you. These numbers work for most other academic libraries as well.
