Find Books Beyond FAU

WorldCat is a database that allows you to search a combined catalog of most of the libraries in North America, and many in other parts of the world. Items not owned by FAU may be ordered through the Interlibrary Loan service.

How to Search the FAU Catalog

 FAU Library Catalog:

The Library Catalog allows you to search for books, government documents, DVDs, electronic books, and other materials in the Library's collection. The catalog will tell you if the library owns a particular periodical (journal or magazine) but does not include the articles found in periodicals. To find these you must use a different database (click on the "Finding Articles" tab above). 

To find books containing literary criticism, do an "Anywhere" (keyword) search on the author's name followed by the word criticism.

The Advanced search screen allows you to combine terms using “and, or, not” as well as limiting a search by location, date, format, or language.
