Finding Foreign Language Materials

You can find foreign language books, newspapers, articles, and more by using the main USC Libraries Search on the libraries' homepage. After searching, select the type of item you are looking for (Articles, Books, Newspapers, etc) and select "See all results", look for the "Language" option under ways to refine your search and select the language you're interested in. If you don't see what you're looking for expand your results by clicking "More."


Search Tips:

  • Try both Romanized characters and script for the most effective searches.
  • Be careful with word division rules - for example, articles are included in Arabic and Hebrew searches but prepositions use a dash in the Romanization of Hebrew.
  • Be flexible; try other variant spellings and translations of words.
  • If you omit hyphens, leave a space. For example, in Romanized Hebrew "ve-eleh" can also be searched as "ve eleh" to find all relevant results.
