Browsing for poetry

Poetry books in print are in the north wing of the Murray Library. The books are organized by language, nationality, author etc. so you won't find all of the poetry books in the same place. Some call number areas to try if you'd like to browse are PR 1170-1228 (General poetry collections), PS 580-619 (American), PS 9299 (Canadian). 

You may also 'browse' in the library catalogue. Start with keywords that describe what you are looking for (such as Indigenous Canada poems). When you find something suitable, either text the record to yourself or copy down the title, call number, and location of the book. Have a look at the Subject headings for that item in the catalogue and click on them to find related material.
