Narrow your WISCAT search results to a specific language

Language filter now available in WISCAT to narrow your search results to materials in a specific language.  
Selecting Spanish in Language filter to refine search results

An author search for Kevin Henkes' works produces more than 4,000 catalog records in WISCAT. That's a benefit of searching 100 library catalogs representing 550+ libraries' holdings, however, too many results to view and sift through. Refine your search using the filters located in the left pane of the search results

Format filter used to narrow search results to Book
Results narrowed by book Format
To use the Language filter, open it to see how many results are in the languages listed. For example, selecting Spanish narrows the Kevin Henkes author search results to 124 records.   

Other filters such as Format may also be used to further narrow those results.
