Do a keyword search for the kind of stories you want to find, for example:

"ghost stories"
"mystery stories"
"short stories" indians
"short stories" women
"short stories" India
"short stories" "african american"
"short stories" spanish women

Browse in the main collection, or search by call number in the HSU Library Catalog. Here are some possibilities:

PN 6014-6120 General & misc. collections
PR 1109-1150 English literature collections
PS 508 A8 Asian-American authors
PS 508 I5 Indian (Native American) authors

Use Advanced Search in the HSU Library Catalog, and search for short stories as a phrase NOT criticism in Subject to find a long list of short story anthologies in the Library. You may add other subject terms to your search for language, country, or group, to get a shorter list. You may sort the list to show the newest items first.
