French and Italian Studies: Find Books

French and Italian language, literature, politics, history, and more.

Get started with the Library Catalog

Use the CC library catalog to find books, DVDs, and other things in our local collection, as well as links to online resources such as ebooks and streaming video.

If you are used to the old "Tiger" catalog, that was replaced with our new catalog in the summer of 2019. It should work similarly to Tiger, but better! Please ask at the Research Desk or Circulation Desk if you need help.

Reference Works

Print reference books are located by the Research Desk (2nd floor of Tutt Library).
These books don't check out of the library. For romance language grammar and dictionaries, browse call numbers starting with PC in the reference stacks.
