Finding Fiction in the FIU Libraries

How to find fiction, fun reading, "regular books" in the library!

Where's the Fiction?

Unlike public libraries, academic libraries such as FIU's Green and Hubert libraries will not have a single "fiction" section where all novels, stories, poems and plays are located.  Fiction is shelved according to the author's country of origin and time period.  Critical works on fiction (literary criticism) and translations are shelved side by side with the novels.  

You can search in the library's catalog by author, title, subject or keyword. 

If you just want to browse our fiction collection, then try these general areas:

American fictionPS 3500s to 3600s area

(for more recent American authors, whose first work was published after 2001, try the PS 3606s area)

British fiction:      PR 6000s to 6100s

Canadian fiction: PR 9100s

Caribbean, African and Asian fiction written in English: PR 9200s to 9500s

Indian fiction:       PK 5400s (regardless of language)

Spanish fiction:    PQ 6600s to 7000s

Fiction in Spanish written outside of Spain: PQ 7000s to 8900s
