Can I search for books in different languages?

I'm looking for books written in a different language, is it possible to search for this?

Yes you can.  Go to the library home page and under quick links, click on Our Catalog(cataLyst).  You will see that under Search Type you can Set Search Limits. Link there and the top option is to specify the language. Scroll down to specify the language you are looking for and be sure to Set Limits.  Then hit the Search key and proceed with your search.  Remember that this limit works ONLY with Keyword and Title searches, and will remain in effect until you go back into setting search limits and erase it.
