Linguistics *: Find Books

This guide is for faculty, graduate, and undergraduate research in linguistics

Book Search

When searching the Libraries' catalog for concepts that have meanings in other disciplines - such as “cohesion,” “hierarchy,” or “redundancy,” try using the Advanced Search and searching for the concept followed by the word “Linguistics.”

Locating Books

Most books on linguistics will be found in the stacks in Doheny Memorial Library. Stack maps are available at the Circulation and Reference desks.Many older materials are kept in our off-campus facility, the Grand Avenue Library, and must be paged through the Libraries' online catalog.
