ENG 272G - Myths: Finding Resources

A sample of resources on mythology, fairy tales, and urban legends.

How does this work?

1.  Select a title.

2.  If it's a physical book, check the holdings information to make sure it's not checked out.

3.  If it's available, text or write down the call number and location.  You'll need it to find the book on the library shelves.

4.  Locate the book on the shelves.  To borrow, take it to the Circulation Desk.
