UCLA Library Collections by Language

an interactive visualization

Data Source

Over 400 Languages

We all know the UCLA Library collects resources in many languages, but the UCLA Library Catalog doesn't allow searches by language alone, so there's no way to find the total number by language... until now!

Using the visualization below, hover your mouse over each colored bubble to see the language and the number of resources. Using the Language filter on the right, you can also see how particular language stack up against each other, by un-checking (All) at the top and then checking the languages you’d like to compare. Every time you do that, you create a unique version of the visualization that you can share online.
