In order to locate language instruction resources within the ULS, begin at It may be useful to search for a specific series devoted to language learning. Searches such as "Barron's Spanish" and "Pimsleur French" will locate resources available in the library. Other, more general searches such as "Chinese language" or "Japanese dictionary" may also return helpful supplementary materials.
Tip: When the results load, go to the sidebar and limit your results to "Book / eBook" (this will remove article reviews). You may also try selecting "Audio Recording" in order to search for listening resources such as the Pimsleur series.
Located across the park from Hillman Library, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (CLP) has many language learning resources, with even more available from other branches.  Try a search like: "Korean language instruction." For more information about online language tools and language-related library programs, visit CLP's Language Tools & Research page.
If you don't have a public library card, find more information here: "How do I get a public library card?"
