  • Finding Fiction Books

    As in most academic libraries, there is no "fiction section" at CFCC.  We catalog works of fiction according to the Library of Congress call number system.

    This means that fiction is shelved according to the author's country of origin and time period.  Literary criticism and translations are shelved side by side with the original work.


    German Literature - PT 1 to PT 4897

    To look for works of fiction on a certain topic or set in a certain location, combine the topic (typed in General Keyword) with the term "FICTION" (typed in Subject Keyword). 

    For example, novels featuring shipwrecks can be found by the search below.
