This is only a brief outline. Explore this guide, contact me, or contact your professor for more information on conducting in-depth research.
- Literature Resource Center, a basic Reference source - critical overviews and selected criticism on a particular author, giving a grounding in who the author is and what they were known for. Additional overview resources, good for when just starting out, are on the Literary Reference Shelf.
- MLA Bibliography, the core collection of scholarly information for literature - specialized journal articles, book chapters, dissertations, and conference proceedings for in-depth treatments of your author or work.
- JSTOR, a large, interdisciplinary collection of journal articles - additional in-depth, scholarly treatments of specific works or themes in that author's output.
- NUCat, the library book catalog - print and online copies of the author's work or book-length critical analysis of that author.
