I need items in languages other than English

Strategies for Locating Non-English Content

  1. Use search terms from the language of interest. (Special characters may or may not be detected in your search, so try the search with and without them. (Example: “El Niño” OR “El Nino”)
  2. Search in English, but limit your results to a particular language. (In a Database or in OMNI, look for a "Language" search field in "Advanced Options" or for other Language options.)
  3. Many databases search only within the titles and English-translated abstracts of articles, rather than in the full text. So you may need to use key English terms in your search.
  4. For more help Ask a Librarian.
