Tips & Special Features:

Another database available is the Literature Resource Center, which also includes some of the material above. For even more literature research tools, please examine the "For More Information" box at the lower-right portion of this page.

Once you enter the database, you can click the "Gale's Lit Index" link (located beneath the search options) to determine where certain authors or literary works are located in Gale's literature databases or in print editions of literature reference works at Thrall.

This database starts off in a basic keyword search. Use the search options to search the full text of articles, an author's name, or the name of a literary work.

Above the search are Advanced Search options and Browse tabs. The Advanced Search lets you specify a critic's name, limit search results to specific criticism series (Classical, Drama, etc.).
