Recommended Databases

1. EBSCO (all databases)

Includes the MLA International Bibliography as well as Humanities Source and Academic Search Complete

2. Jstor

Archives hundreds of top journals in literary studies. Unfortunately, it has a weak search engine. I recommend it only if the other sources listed here don't yield useful results.

3. Onesearch

Comprehensive source for both books and scholarly (peer reviewed) articles; the default search from the library homepage

4. Project Muse

Has 600+ journals in the humanities, including many on literary studies.

Off campus access to these databases: You can get the list of Hunter databases from http://library.hunter.cuny.edu and then choose the database tab. Off campus you’ll be prompted for your Hunter Net ID. Click here for more information about your Net ID.
