Literature: Databases and Journals

We study literature to understand and appreciate literary works and to understand culture, society and the era in which literary works were written.

Databases that provide access to articles from magazines and newspapers are available from the library's 'Online Resources' page. You can also find directions on how to use these databases from off campus
