Search the Library Catalog to find print and online materials at the U-M Library. BTW, catalog searches identify books, journals (not articles), CDs, DVDs, videos, conference proceedings, microforms, U-M dissertations and more.
If you don't find what you need, try the 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, as below.
The premier index/database to identify articles, books and dissertations on topics of literature, modern languages and folklore published internationally is MLA International Bibliography.
