Fiction in Trible Library

YES! We do have fiction!

  • You may have noticed that the library doesn't have a fiction section like public libraries. Most academic libraries don't have one.
  • We do have works of fiction and not just the classic works of literature from authors such as Dickens, Shakespeare and Twain.
  • Fiction is shelved according to the author's country of origin and time period with literary criticisms and translations shelved with the novels. This is quite handy if you are doing research since everything is together!
  • You can use the online catalog to search for fiction, just as you do for non-fiction. Search by keyword, author, or title or try using fiction as a subject (note: this will also provide you with books about fiction and not just fictional works)
  • We also have a small collection of popular current fiction and non-fiction located on the Browsing Shelves near the main circulation desk. (DSU entrance)
