NEW! Literary Reference Center Plus

English students, majors, and faculty: rejoice! You now have access to EBSCO's Literary Reference Center Plus. It can be cross-searched with other EBSCO databases, like Academic Search Premier and MLA International Bibliography. 

Literary Reference Center Plus contains much more content than our other literature databases (especially Literature Online Reference Edition, which went away last fall). Please note that this database is different than the Literature Resource Center from Gale, which has a similar name. 

Here's what you get in Literary Reference Center Plus:

  • More than 35,700 plot summaries, synopses and work overviews
  • Nearly 90,000 articles/essays of literary criticism
  • More than 259,000 author biographies
  • More than 700 literary journals
  • More than 2,500 reference books
  • More than 831,000 book reviews
  • More than 122,000 classic and contemporary poems
  • More than 29,000 classic and contemporary short stories
  • Nearly 9,800 author interviews
  • More than 8,200 classic novels
  • 72 literary videos pertaining to classic literary works and authors
