ENG 023 - Dr. Herr: Finding Articles on Library Databases

This Guide accompanies the library session for Dr. Herr's class for the research paper on Shelley's Frankenstein


Use Omnisearchthe box in the center of the Library homepage, to discover the best keywords to use, and to find out how much and what kind of information is available. 

Omnisearch box

It searches all the major library databases and the library catalog all at once.
This is a database powered by EBSCO software, so except for the branding, the screens are set up the same in Academic Search Complete or any of the other EBSCO databases



Get it for me...

If you find an article citation in a journal database, but not the article itself, use Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad)

It takes approximately 24 to 48 hours to receive the scanned copy of the article in your KU email.

Databases for Literature and Literary Criticism

JSTOR  has scholarly articles and a large collection of ebooks on all subjects.  Most of the citations have articles attached.

Literature Resource Center  is the largest full-text database of literary resources and criticism.
