Graduate English Research Guide

This guide is intended to assist graduate level research. It does not contain absolutely everything you will ever need to know, but it's a good start.

Subject Databases

Subject academic databases focus on specific disciplines. The databases most closely associated to literature are listed under the English database page. This does not mean you can't use other databases in other subjects as you find appropriate, but most likely when you are searching for criticism, analysis, etc. you will stick with these.

Access the databases through the library's homepage.
