Three Subject Databases to Try

 

MLA International Bibliography

The premier database for literary studies in all languages and times periods -- plus just about anything else you might imagine a Literature Department might study or teach: film, TV, popular culture, and more.

Academic Search Premier

Broad and multidisciplinary but smaller than HOLLIS, it's a good mix of general interest and scholarly publication; often a way to uncover cultural commentary, interviews and reviews.

Nexis Uni

A full-text newspaper database, 1980 (or so) to present; it's good for reviews, cultural commentary, interviews, and journalistic reviews.
