World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Resources

Research resources for language classes (Spanish, French, Chinese, Japanese, German, Scandinavian studies/Swedish, ASL)


This subject guide highlights important research resources for all World Languages, Literature, and Culture classes at Augustana. Whether you're a major/minor or taking a single class, you should find something useful here.

If you have any questions about your research, get in touch with the humanities librarian Kaitlyn Goss-Peirce (see the box on this page) or ask at the research help desk on the library's 2nd floor. You can also chat with the Augustana student or librarian currently on call using the chat feature pop-up on the right side of the screen.


If you are an Asian studies major or minor, you should also consult the library's subject guide for Asian studies.
