Library Resources-the basics

There are many libraries on Penn's campus. Most of the books for this class can be found in Van Pelt-Dietrich library or the Katz Center for Advanced Judaica but you will also be visiting the Kislak Center to take a look at some rare materials.  All of the libraries share the same catalog, Franklin, so begin your research there by searching for some key terms such as "China AND Jews".
