Online Literature Resources Old and New September 15, 2011

12:30pm

Clearwater Room, Idaho Commons


The library has subscribed to a new database, Literature Criticism Online, that unlocks the information on 19th, 20th, and contemporary literature inside all those brown volumes on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the library . We will also reintroduce some of our stalwarts, like MLA Bib, JSTOR and LRC, that you may not have perused in a while. If literature, linguistics, TESL, creative writing, or heck, inorganic chemistry is your area of interest, come to this session and see just how much is available to you! Rochelle Smith, library liaison to the Humanities, will facilitate.
