Literary works and books about literature in the FSU Libraries can be found in two main ways: by searching the online FSU Library Catalog and by browsing the Libraries' collection.
When searching the online catalog, a basic search will let you search by keyword, title, author, subject or call number. An advanced search will let you search by a combination of these fields, as well as by format, language, location, and date. When looking for books about an author or an author's work, including literary criticism, use the advanced search and search by subject. Enter the author's name (last name first) in the search box, and select "subject" from the drop-down list to the right of the search box.
The following Library of Congress classifications may be useful when browsing the shelves at Strozier Library for additional materials on literature. The majority of the 'P's are on the fourth and fifth floors. Additional materials (such as micromaterials, media, and reference books) may be found on the ground floor and the first (main) floor.
Books in libraries other than FSU and other local libraries may be requested through Interlibrary Loan. FSU students and faculty may personally check out books from any public state university or community college library in Florida by using their FSU card.
