Find Articles using Databases
See the Find Articles Using Databases> Resources by Subject list for access to all databases for English literature
The best databases for finding literary criticism include the MLA Bibliography and ABELL (Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature).
Some databases provide full-text articles while others are "citation only".
Additionally, many databases offer "primary source" material in full-text, the most popular being LION, EEBO, ECCO and C19.
There are numerous specialty databases such as World Shakespeare Bibliography, International Medieval Bibliography, Linguistics Abstracts and North American Theatre Online.
If the database you use does not provide full-text:
- Click on the yellow "Find it @ UT" button for access options OR
- look at the citation for the title of the journal in which the article appears (sometimes called "source")
- type the title of the journal into the online catalog
- see if the Library offers access to the journal either electronically or in print
