Literature Resources: Primary Sources

Primary Source Databases

On this page you will find subscription databases that provide the actual texts of literary works, inlcuding fiction, poetry and drama from various periods in history. The databases cover literature mainly from the English-speaking world, particularly the United States and Great Britain.

All of these resources can be accessed from off-campus, but you will need to enter your Multipass username and password in order to use them.
