Literature, Creative Writing, & Literary Criticism: Journal Articles, Databases
This guide will help you find British, American, and English-language literary texts, creative writing resources, and literary criticism on authors or literary works in books, reference book entries, and journal articles available from the OSU Library.
Databases for Journal Articles, etc.
Below are the key subject databases to search for journal articles of literary criticism. Many of the databases have full-text articles, but if the full text is not available, click on the Article Linker link (). If another database from the OSU Library has the full text of the article, it will be displayed in a new window or a link to it will appear. If an article is not available online from another database, you can get a copy of the article from interlibrary loan. Click on the "Request a copy of this article" link and log in to the Interlibrary Services page that comes up. The article citation information will automatically appear in the interlibray loan form. Click the "Submit" button, and you will receive an email when your article is available, usually within 48 hours.
You will need to log in with your OSU email address and O-Key password to access these databases off-campus. Click HERE to log in.
General Databases / Reviews
The following are general library databases with some full-text articles from journals and other periodicals covering many subject areas. They are not specific to any one field, but are multidisciplinary and worth consulting along with the subject-specific databases listed above. They are also good for finding book reviews; for more information, see the Book Reviews guide at http://info.library.okstate.edu/bookreviews.
