THEA 3890 Porterfield: Finding Literary Criticism

Databases Helpful for Finding Literary Criticism

Searching Literary Reference Center and MLA Bibliography

The basic concepts that work in Discover GALILEO will also work in MLA Bibliography and Literary Reference Center.   Since these are smaller, more focused databases, it can be helpful to keep your searches simple. 


MLA Bibliography


MLA Bibliography is a great source for abstracts and/or citations for the books and articles on your topic. The information from MLA Bibliography can be used to order an article or book through ILL. 


Literary Reference Center


Literary Reference Center can provide more focused results from any searches that you do. In addition, it offers the ability to limit results by Source Type, which includes Plot Summaries and Literary Criticism.
