Literature & Languages
Full length journal, magazine and newspaper articles can be found in our online article collections.
If a book or article cannot be found in PVAMU’s resources, it can usually be borrowed from another library. Fill out the Interlibrary Loan form, and please note that it may take several weeks to receive the item.
Use the Online Library Catalog to locate books in the library. Search the catalog for “literature”; “language”. Most of the books on literature and languages that can be checked out are in the P section. You’ll find useful background information in these books, which are located on the first floor of the library in the Reference department:
