1)  Many of the library's databases allow you to limit your search by language.  Look for the "advanced search" function, then limit by language.

2)  The library subscribes to several databases covering journals that are primarily in a non-English language.  These include:

  • e-Korean Studies  
    Korean studies collection comprised of 9 databases in English and Korean. Offerings cover all academic disciplines, including arts and humanities, social sciences, sciences, medical sciences, and physical education. E-books, e-journals, dissertations, classical literature, video lectures, and newspapers are included. North Korean academic journals are also available. This resource was made possible through a grant from the Korean Foundation.
  • Fuente Académica Premier  
    Fuente Acadmica Premier is a rapidly expanding collection of over 570 scholarly journals from Latin America, Portugal and Spain. All major subject areas are covered with particular emphasis on agriculture, biological sciences, economics, history, law, literature, philosophy, psychology, public administration, religion and sociology. The database is updated weekly.
3)  You can also search Google Scholar in various languages. From the Google Scholar homepage click on the 3 parallel lines ("hamburger icon") > settings > languages.
4)  In addition, the library subscribes to newspapers in many different languages, including
  • Naver News Library  
    Full-text Korean newspaper database.  
  • ‚Äč
    • Full Text
    Most recent 2 months of over 400 U.S. and international newspapers, many in foreign languages. All newspapers are in their entirety and are available on the day they are published.
