There’s a new way to find foreign language materials at AADL. Let’s start by calling them World Languages. If you are looking for materials in Arabic, you would go to Advanced Search and click on call number & enter World-Ara. There's a new collection, too: Youth Lang-Learn. Wait! There’s more! The Basic Reading and ESL collections are now called Language Learning or Lang-Learn for short. You can even look for Lang-Learn Fiction with Reading Levels for adults. We look forward to searches becoming easier for you and everyone as we tweak our catalog and roll out a new one.
