Welcome to our guide to Culturally-themed literature at Staley Library!

This guide was designed to assist students who are assigned to read a novel about a culture other than their own in identifying possible titles, but it is also available to anyone who enjoys reading about the vast and vibrant cultures and traditions around the world.

This guide does not include notes about whether a particular book is available at any given time.  It may already be checked out by another patron.  To find out if a title is available, click on the title of the book, which will link you to our catalog. 

To use this guide, simply start clicking on the tabs above to "visit" the different regions of the world.
