UCOR 102: Imaginative Literature and Critical Writing (Dr. Knutson)


This research guide is designed to connect students in Dr.Knutson's UCOR 102 class to resources that will be useful in doing the final paper. It connects you to electronic resources available through the Gumberg Library and its databases. It will link you to background sources, ebooks (where available), and databases for articles.

  • There is a page on this guide specifically for resources on each of the authors and their works the class is dealing with. The links on those pages will take you to biographical materials and literary criticism about the authors and their works.
  • The last page, "Databases for Specific Disciplines, will take you to the most important and comprehensive databases for articles in each of your majors. You can use these to find materials in your disciplines that you can relate to whichever literary work/works you chose to analyze.
  • All electronic resources can be accessed off-campus by entering your Multipass username and password when requested.
