Researching Your Literary Topic

A reference book can be a good starting place for an unfamiliar topic, providing an overview and key terms to use in further searches. For short stories try searching for your author in Reference Guide to Short Fiction

Keep in mind that many reference books cannot be counted in your required number of sources for a research paper!

These databases are good places to start your literature-related research. If you have difficulties locating sources on your topic, remember the librarians are available to help.
