Using a Database's Language Filter
Finding sources in different languages in a database really depends on how the database is laid out. Some of them allow filtering right before you search, and some of them can only be filtered after you've searched. Some basic guidelines are:
- When you start searching look for for the label "Language" and check any languages you want to filter to in the checkboxes below it
- If there isn't a Language filter in the search, there's usually one after you've searched
- In the search results, look around to see anywhere you can refine/filter your results (usually this is on the left side of the page)
- Click "Language" and select any languages you want to filter to
That's it! Keep in mind that you might want to do your search in your target language too, because you'll get different results either way!
Beyond the DNL
Other options for finding books:
Allow WorldCat to access your location information and you can see if a book is available at Fairfield or nearby. Once you've found the book you want, you can click on the "Get From Other Libraries (ILL)" link (please note that if you're not ordering it through ILL, you would be responsible for picking it up from the other library).
Other options for finding articles:
Sometimes if the Library doesn't have the full text of an article, you can find it by searching for the article title in Google Scholar.
