Students and researchers in English language and literature.
In this Libguide we try to explain how to search for publications on English language and literature, both fast and extensive.
We also refer to other guides on specific databases or general subjects.
Not all UBU Libguides are available in English
When you need a specific book, or a chapter from it, search for the author and title in our library catalogue.
When you need a specific article from a journal, search:
Google Scholar: do a quick search for publications you can get hold of easily. Beware that you may miss important publications and that you will find a lot of titles that are not closely related to your subject.
MLA International Bibliography: important scholarly publications on language and literature. For journal articles, books and chapters from books. Unfortunately there is a significant chance that books are not available in Utrecht. For a quick search, limit your results to (peer reviewed) journal articles.
