To search for book locations in USC Libraries, please conduct AUTHOR, TITLE or SUBJECT, via USC Libraries portal page . I recommend using Advanced Search to customize your search for quicker and more precise results.
Most fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction books in English, as well as literary criticism and literary journals and periodicals can be found in the Doheny Library. In addition, the Leavey Library (open 24/7) has a small collection of books in all areas.
The call number range PS corresponds to the Subject range "American Literature"; the call number range PR corresponds to British and other literatures in English. In the Doheny Library, the PR and PS sections are on the second level of stacks, behind the Circulation desk.
LOCATIONS: (please look carefully at locations in your catalog records)
Google Scholar is a good tool for finding citations of books that USC Libraries do not own yet. If the book that you need is not owned by USC Libraries, please first submit an interlibray loan request to the IDD (Integrated Document Delivery) service and then recommend the book for purchase by clicking the Recommend-A-Book.
Please also explore the database WorldCat . WorldCat contains more than 32 million records describing items owned by libraries around the world. Types of materials include books, journals, musical scores, computer data files, magazines, newspapers,
computer programs, sound recordings, films and slides, maps, videotapes, and manuscripts written as early as the 12th century.
Los Angeles Public Library is a research library worth exploring as well.
