ENGL 206: World Literature II for online students: General Information


This guide is designed students in the online English 206 World Literature II classes.  What is the difference between this guide, and the guide for on campus students?  A few things:

  1. This guide is going to focus online resources.  Very few of you will be coming to the physical library so I want to highlight our online resources that you can use.  (You are of course more than welcome to come to the main library)
  2. The time lines for the on campus and off campus classes are different.  This guide is designed to reflect the online class schedule.

Basic Search Suggestions

In the Books & Media Tab:

  • Conduct a subject search on the author of the work in question.  This will give you books about the author.
  • Don't forget to use Boolean Operators (AND, OR, NOT).  These can help you focus your results.
  • If you are looking for literary criticism, try a subject search on the author's last name AND criticism.
  • If your author is associated with a literary movement (e.g. Harlem Renaissance) do a subject search on the movement.

If you are having difficulty finding information, talk to your professor or one of the librarians at the Research Assistance desk.

Advanced Search Suggestions

  • Remember to use Boolean Operators (AND, OR, NOT) in your search to make it more efficient.
  • When looking for information on an author, check to see: if they have a pen name, if they wrote under an alias, or if their name translates multiple ways when converted into English.  If any of these apply, OR together all the possible names in your search. Ex. Elliot, George OR Evans, Mary Ann
  • Take advantage of the Gale collections of criticism excerpts found in Literature Criticism Online.  These excerpts can give you a good idea about the content of a particular article.  If you decide that the article will be useful, the citation information is given so you can find the complete article in the library or request it through interlibrary loan.
