World Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics: Find Books

Google Books Search

Caveat: Google Books is a great way to search for books. It is also a great place to scan the full-text of a book.  But, each time you access a book via Google Book, you are given access to randomized content.

For example, if you look at a book on Monday, you may have access to pages 1-5 and 10-15 but not 6-9. If you look at that same book on Tuesday, you may have access to completely different pages. 

Finding Books at WMU

Library Search is a comprehensive tool to identify all types of items in our collection. It is indispensable for locating books at WMU.
