The goal of the Wilmington University Library is to provide the best, most up-to-date, and student-focused resources for all of our diverse and multilingual students. With that in mind, we have created this informational source called the Translation and Language Tools Guide.  The purpose of this guide is to assist students in navigating multilingual and translation tools available online, as well as, those specific to our WilmU resources (such as our databases):

1.  Locate scholarly/peer-reviewed articles (available in multiple languages)

2.  Find and evaluate resources (in-person at our libraries and remotely)

3. Learn what other resources are available to WilmU students

Borrow Books in Other Languages

Remember that the Delaware Library Catalog offers books and DVDs in other languages. Students can borrow them, and we can mail them out! Use the Advanced search to select a language, because not all records are clear about the resources' languages.
