CHIN 355 - Chinese Literature in Translation

A guide to Gleeson Library for Chinese Literature in Translation students

Books and Ebooks 

Gleeson has lots of books and ebooks that you can use for your research. You can use Fusion to search for books, but you can also go directly to Ignacio, the library’s book database, to search for books, too.

In Ignacio:

  • To search ebooks only, click "search online holdings only."

  • Use our Home Ship service to request print books from Gleeson. Please allow for shipping times.

Use Interlibrary Loan to request books that are not available at Gleeson. Please allow for shipping times (at least 1-2 weeks).

Ignacio Search Strategies 


You don’t have to read the entire book to see if it will be useful to your research. You can search within ebooks to find terms or names, and you can use the index at the back of print books to see if a topic or person is covered.

What if Gleeson doesn't have the book that I'm looking for? Or what if I'd like to expand my search to other libraries?

Try LINK+. Searching the LINK+ catalog expands your search to libraries with which we have a sharing agreement. Books requested from LINK+ arrive at Gleeson within approximately 3 business days. We'll send you an email when your book arrives. You can pick up and return LINK+ requests from Gleeson's front desk.  Checkouts are 3 weeks.
