Search the Library Catalog to find books available in print at the U-M Library and online. E-books are linked from catalog records. Btw, catalog searches also identify journals (not articles), CDs, DVDs, videos, conference proceedings, microforms, U-M dissertations and more.
If you don't find what you need, try WorldCat to find books and other materials available at many other libraries world-wide. Books owned by U-M are identified, and it is easy to place an interlibrary loan request for the materials we don't own directly from the WorldCat record.
When searching for works of literature (or any other discipline) written *in* the different African Portuguese speaking countries, the subject headings will vary according to the country/topic you are searching for. Names and time periods can be changed to fit your research needs. On occasions, subject headings in some databases appear in Portuguese, so make sure that you try the different possibilities. Some subject headings may include:
Short stories, Cape Verdean (Portuguese)
