Reference and Basic Resources Print Page

Call Number Areas

French materials are mostly in two call number ranges if you would like to browse.  Remember that you will find these call numbers both in the reference collection (Floor 1) and in the circulating collection (Floor 3).

PC2001-PC3761 is for French language and language study.  It includes dictionaries, grammar books and many of the "easy reader" adaptations. 

PQ1-PQ3999 is for French literature, including literature from francophone countries.  Compared to the "easy reader" section in the language learning area, this range includes the primary works of literature in French and in translation, alongside criticism about it.
