Research Tips

Catalog Tips:

In order to locate books in the original French language, use these advanced search tips:

Rockhurst Catalog:

  • select Advanced Keyword Search in the box to the upper right
  • type in a common French adjective, such as "un or la"
  • under location select RU Main collection
  • under format select Book/Journal
  • under language select French and then go back up and click the Submit button
  • You can do the same search in MOBIUS, but under location select ANY

Database Tips:

  • When doing a database search look for Advanced Search settings that allow you to select a language option.
  • For example, in JSTOR you can select Advanced Search,  pick a topic keyword (ie, "Victor Hugo" or "Internet") and select FRENCH. The resulting articles will be written in French.
  • Another example, in Academic Search Complete, underneath the search box, select Advanced Search, scroll down to "Limit Your Results"  and select French in the drop down menu under "Language." Do a search for your topic and the results will be in French.
