  • About our Library Catalog
    This catalog includes the holdings of all the Cornell University libraries. The catalog contains records for books, computer files, government documents, manuscripts and archives, maps, musical scores, periodicals, serials, sound recordings, and visual materials.

  • Library of Congress Classification outline
    An outline of the call numbers used to shelve books in the library and the general topics they represent.

  • Library of Congress Subject Headings
    The Cornell University Library uses Library of Congress subject headings as the standard for subject searching. Unlike keyword searching, where any term or wording of a topic will usually yield results, subject searching by subject heading requires you to use the exact wording of a Library of Congress heading to retrieve search results.

Subject Headings for this class include:

  • Borges, Jorge Luis
  • Cortazar, Julio
  • Fuentes, Carlos
  • García Márquez, Gabriel
  • Quiroga, Horacio
  • Rulfo, Juan
