In-Class Activity

After we've discussed the library catalog and useful databases, we'll walk over to the library so that you can practice finding books by their call numbers and browsing the stacks.

Each group will be assigned a type of resource to spend time searching for (short story, drama, and poetry). In your groups:

  1. Select two or three of the resources in this Guide and find them in the stacks. Feel free to browse around in the stacks and choose other resources, just be prepared to justify why it could work for your recitations in this class.
  2. Show them to your librarian and walk me through how you found it.
  3. Don't worry about putting them back on the shelf--we'll start a pile.

Library Databases

                double arrow pointing right            Search Library Databases, too!

Besides physical books and free online resources, there are a few library databases that contain poetry, short stories, and plays as well as scholarship about literature.

You can limit each of these databases by the type of literature you're looking for.
