21G.019: Communicating across Cultures: Find Books & Films

Class research guide for Jane Dunphy's Communicating across Cultures class.

Hayden Library Closure

The Hayden Library is currently closed for renovation until fall 2020, so books in the Hayden basement are inaccessible at this time. When searching the Barton catalog below, the location will be updated if the book is being temporarily housed in a different library, or if not, the record will include a link to find a copy in Borrow Direct. Borrow Direct is a network of other libraries, and you can directly request the book from there.

Books requested in Borrow Direct should take 3-4 business days to get here.
