Electronic Reference Collections

The Gumberg Library provides access to two extensive suites of electronic reference works geared to literature. Using both will provide you with a great amount of introductory information on your chosen literary topic. Writing about fairy tales can also be located in these databases.

All electronic reference works can be accessed off-campus, but you will have to enter your Multipass username and password word in order to use them.
