Resources and information for research in English studies.



The books in the reference collection (DLB, CLC, TCLC, etc.) are amazing resources for literary criticism.  The best way to use them is to find the most recent index in any of the series (they are all part of a collective publication) and find your author.  The index will tell you in which title and which volume your author is in.  For example you may see: TCLC 28 or DLB 99.  That tells you the series and then the volume.  You just have to pull that specific volume.
