English Literature & Literatures in English

Resources for the study of the language and literatures in English.

Finding Articles

Articles, in comparison to books, are shorter and usually discuss a more focused topic. Below are library resources that provide access to scholarly articles and other resources that are often unavailable on the open web.

  • Databases: See the subject-focused databases listed in this page, or search the Database Finder.
  • Journals:
    • Journal Finder: Find journals by title, ISSN, or keyword.
    • BrowZine: Search for or browse select scholarly online journals to which the Libraries subscribe.
  • Citation Linker: Use to find and access a specific  journal article, journal or book.

If the Libraries do not have access to the article, please submit an interlibrary loan request by clicking the "Go to ILLiad" link on the Interlibrary Loan page.

Finding Articles through Library Databases

The library databases listed on this page provide access to find scholarly articles, as well as other types of information. If you don't see a Full Text link below the article citation, look for a button labeled "Get it!" This application will check for access to the full text of the article within the library's subscriptions.

If you see a message that we don't have access, choose the Campbell Library Interlibrary Loan Request link to order the article from another library. Often we can get an electronic copy of the article quickly.
