To find the original work and its translation(s): from InfoHawk+ Catalog, select search type “Title beginning with,” enter search terms, for example, “Bound feet & Western dress.” You will see a button that says "Multiple Versions". Choose this button to access the English and Chinese versions.

Another way to find the original and its translation(s) is to use a Browse search by “Library of Congress call numbers.” The LC call numbers of the English version “HQ1767.C434 1996” and its translation into Chinese “HQ1767.C43412 2011” are displayed next to each other. You may also browse search "by Author” or “By Subject” to find the original and its translations.

To understand the language of an item, when using InfoHawk+ review the "Details" button. Read “Language Note” which describes the languages of the text, for instance, “Text in English and French on opposite pages.”
