Literary Works in Print

If you know which literary work you're looking for, search the title or author in our Library Catalog. Request books we don't have through Interlibrary Loan.

If you'd like to browse literary works in our print collections, head to the 2nd floor of Howard-Tilton Memorial Library (7001 Freret St), which is where books with call numbers starting with PJ-PS are located.

The Library of Congress classifies Asian literatures with PJ, PK, PL, and PM call numbers. Asian American literatures are classified under PS, for American literature. Check out this call number list for more specific browsing ranges.
