Course Guides in English


Welcome to the GVSU Libraries guide to research in literatures in English.  On the pages tabbed above, you'll find resources tailored to specific research needs:

  • Find Articles
    These resources index and store scholarly articles written about literature.
  • Books & Media
    Using Book-length scholarship in English can help you go deeper into specific topic and/or find quality articles anthologized into books by topic.
  • Dictionaries & Encyclopedias
    Dictionaries and encyclopedias are a good place to start for background information about your topic. This could include an overview, facts & quick answers and paths to other sources.
  • Recommended Journals
    Searching by journal is great for exploring the culture of literary study and keeping up with new scholarship in a focused area.


This is a great place to start when you do not know where to begin.  Summon is the library's version of Google.  It searches both our library catalog and many of our databases all at once!
