Best Places to Start

  • Library Catalog
    books are often your best bet for biographical information or literary criticism! If you are looking for criticism about a specific work (especially a poem or short story), search the author's name as a keyword or subject, then use the book's index to locate info on the particular work.
  • MLA International Bibliography
  • Project Muse
    For finding scholarly articles on a variety of topics.
  • JSTOR
    for finding scholarly articles. JSTOR does not usually have the most recent years of a journal.
  • Literature Resource Center
    for finding biographical information about an author, as well as snippets of criticism.
  • Literary Reference Center
    Best for plot summaries, book reviews, poems, and short stories. You can also find scholarly criticism.
  • Find It!
    This "search everything" tool searches the library catalog and multiple databases--all at once. Find scholarly articles, books, book reviews, interviews, popular magazine articles, etc.
