The Library has arranged a two week trial of The Literary Encyclopedia. Trial access ends on February 15th. (We previously trialled The Literary Encyclopedia in March 2007).
The Literary Encyclopedia is a collaborative global project that provides a description of most literary and cultural texts of scholarly interest in the English-speaking world, as well as informed guidance to critical reading, cultural topics and the historical context of cultural production. The publication is written and owned by a network comprising more than 2,280 contributors and distinguished editors who are mostly university teachers around the world. Since all articles are reviewed by qualified editors before publication, and our contributors have research publications in the area of their contribution, The Literary Encyclopedia can be cited with confidence in scholarly essays.
To access The Literary Encyclopedia, go to http://www.litencyc.com/ – if you are on-campus you will get immediate access, while if you are off-campus you will need to enter your university username and password for Institutional Login via the UK Federation (Shibboleth).
