Finding Fiction

Looking for recent fiction at the library? Here's how you can find it!

Where is the Fiction Section?

In the system that our library uses to organize books, fiction titles are interspersed with literary criticism and books about language and are organized by country.  We have thousands of books in the language and literature section, making them a bit more difficult to browse then, for example, the fiction section at a book store.  

Usually searching the online catalog for fiction is a better way to find what you are looking for.  You can search for a particular title, or use the subject "fiction" and any other words or limits you like to narrow your results.
