"Vibrant use of color defining the landscape of the face"

That is how our latest display has been described. Sheila Moran's Art 100 class has generously loaned us approximately fifteen self-studies until the beginning of fall semester. Come into the Library and see these beautiful pieces on the main floor near Circulation and Reference.

Are you looking for books in Spanish?

Unlike public libraries, which have books in a particular foreign language shelved together, the Southwestern College Library shelves by subject. Therefore, a Spanish-language book about Mexican history would be found with Mexican history books in English.

Fiction (novels, poetry) in Spanish have call numbers beginning with PQ, and most are on the third floor. So, Isabel Allende's Hija de la Fortuna will be found next to Daughter of Fortune.

And speaking of Allende, her latest novel, Zorro, is available in our library in both Spanish and English. However, they are in the New Book Shelf section on the main floor near the entrance.
