The library has many resources for literature papers.
One excellent electronic resource for locating articles about authors and their works is the Literature Resource Center database. This database gives you access to biographies and critical analyses of more than 120,000 authors from every age and literary discipline. You can search the database by author, title of work, keyword, or full text.
- For a short tutorial on using Literature Resource Center, see the Research Guide for ENG 102.
To find books about a particular author and his or her work, please visit our Online Catalog or our eBook collections and search for the writer by subject. For example, if you would like to find a book about Toni Morrison and her works, set the search to "subject" and type "Toni Morrison" into the search box. Your search in the catalog will return a list of books in the library. Doing the same search in our eBook collections will bring up books that can be read online.
