Literature Resource Center (LRC) contains full-text content including literary criticism, biographies, bibliographies, work overviews and explications, Web sites, and periodical articles.

To use LRC:

  2. Click on English/Literature from the "Resources by Subject" box on the left-hand side of the page.

  3. Click on Literature Resource Center (under "reference sources").

  4. The search screen is set to a default Author search. To do a different kind of search, such as Title or Subject, click on the appropriate link under "Other Searches." Click on Advanced Search to do a combination search.

  5. In the Advanced Search mode, click on the drop-down box to select the type of search you want to do, then type what you are looking for in the blank box. For example: to look for articles on "the theme of race in Huckleberry Finn," type "Huckleberry Finn" in the first box and change the drop-down box to "Title -- All Words." On the second line, type "race" and change the drop-down box to "Keyword." Then click on "Search."

  6. Click on the labeled tabs that come up with your results to view Biographies, full-text Criticism, Articles, and Work Overviews, Bibliographies, Additional Resources or Literary-Historical Timelines. (If a tab does not light up when you put the mouse over it, then there were no items retrieved in that category.)

  7. To view the full record of a specific item from your list of results, click on the linked title.

  8. Print or E-mail using the icons at the top left of the page (only visible once you've clicked on a specific item).
