Librarians are here to help!
The study of English literature includes the study of literary texts, the history of literature, and criticism and can involve looking into historical, cultural, or thematic connections. English majors may also seek information for writers or information about teaching English. This guide to resources presents a small sampling of the many reference tools available on writers and for writers. Please don't hesitate to ask a librarian for assistance if you aren't finding what you need.
