Question: How do I search by language?
Answer:

Language search terms are based on the three-letter codes listed in the MARC Code List for Languages, produced by the Library of Congress. The Language codes are the first three letters of the language name as it is known in English.

Examples:         eng (English)         fre (French)         ger (German)         ita (Italian)         spa (Spanish)

Enter the three-letter language code as a keyword in the Search IHM box or in Advanced Search, select the field "Language" and enter the three-letter code in the "find this exact wording" field.
