Library Resources for Literature Research: Reference Books

This guide is designed to connect literature students with the resources needed for library research.

Browsing for Books in Reference and the Stacks

As you think through your topic, you may need to clarify literary terms and concepts.  The Library has many Reference books which will give you tools you may need to do a literary analysis.  The books listed in the box to the right are located in the PN section of the Reference Stacks behind the Reference Desk.  Some examples are listed on this page.  Ask the Reference Librarian for help if you need to! 

The PN81 call number in the stacks is also a great place to browse for books related to literary theory.
