World Languages Materials at the Alexandria Campus Library

NOVA’s Alexandria Campus Library continues to build their collection of books in Spanish and other languages. To help you spot these titles on the shelves when you are browsing, the librarians have implemented a helpful new system. They have placed clear lime green labels over the call number of any book in a language other than English (at least 50%, so the labels are on bilingual books, too). It’s not limited to Spanish-language books, but once you are in the Spain and Latin American literature section, those books are much more noticeable.

Look for this system soon in the feature films section!

Is there a book or film that the library doesn’t have but should? Please see your recommendations to Prof. Martha Davis at
