Welcome to the course guide for FREN 202: Intermediate French Readings. Here you'll find a selection of resources to help you locate material for your study of topics relevant to the francophone world.
1) To find material in foreign languages in library catalogs and databases, you have two main options.
2) If your word or concept returns too large a set of results, try adding the definite article (e.g. "la femme" vs. "femme").
3) Put phrases, titles, or full names in quotation marks if you get too many results (e.g. La Nouvelle Vague vs. "La Nouvelle Vague").
4) VCU Libraries databases will not translate Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) if you use French. A search for "chanel AND chemise" will return significantly different results from "chanel et chemise."
