This guide is to help you get a jumpstart on Spanish language acquisition by giving an overview of what Spanish language resources are available in the library, along with some quick tips on how to find and use them. This guide was built in support of the SUU Spanish program.

Periodicals and Serials
Although many of the journals and annuals we have in Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, sometimes a print copy is the only way to go. Below is a list of periodicals and serials we have in print and electronic formats. (Note: Print copies of periodicals are housed in the collapsible shelves on the first level, organized alphabetically by title, whereas serials are in the book shelves, organized by call number, like books).
At Sherratt Library we use the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) system to organize the items on our shelves. These call "numbers" (they're really letters) on the spines are used for most of our items, including print books and ebooks. Below is a list of call numbers that relate to French (browsing these sections in the shelves on the 2nd level or in Reference on the 1st level, can reveal resources you never knew you needed)!
