Searching the Library Catalog

To locate books on specific topics, search the Library Catalog. You can begin with a keyword search (e.g. "German language"; "Women and Germany"; "East Germany"; "German unification"); click on a title of interest and follow the subject hotlinks in the cataloging record to locate other books on the same topic.

To search by Author: Type the author's last name first, followed by the first name (if you know it). For example:

  • Buchner, Georg
  • Goethe, Johann Wolfgang
  • Heine, Heinrich
