The general circulating collections of the Marriott Library include over 2800 titles in Portuguese:
Once you have done a search in our catalog, one of the facets on the left side of the screen is Language. If you click on Portuguese, most of your results should be in that language, but titles translated from Portuguese (into English, for example) will also show up. Please feel free to contact me if you aren't able to find what you're looking for.
Browsing the shelves of a library can lead to serendipitous discoveries. But even with browsing it can help to have an idea of where particular subjects are located. The following lists will give the browsers among you a place to start.
Books on Portuguese as a language (philology, grammar, syntax, dictionaries) will be found at the north end of Level 2, between the call numbers PC5001 and PC5498, with most Portuguese-English dictionaries at PC5333.
Portuguese literature and the literature of Portuguese-speaking countries outside of Portugal will be found between the call numbers PQ9000 and PQ9999, as follows:
Cabo Verde PQ9942-PQ9942.9 [very little in the collection]
Guiné-Bissau PQ9945-PQ9945.9 [nothing in our collection at present]
São Tomé e Príncipe PQ9948-PQ9948.9 [nothing in our collection at present]
