Available through us:

You can use the library search to find language learning materials the Library owns.  Use the advanced search to search for the subject (such as French language).  Then use the filters to further limit your results.  Use Show Only/Available in library to see only physical materials such as books and CDs.  Use Material Type to limit to a specific format such as books, audio or video.
