Best Bets for English and Literary Studies Articles

These databases below are your best bets for finding quality journal articles for English and literary studies.

Finding the Full-Text

Need help getting the full-text of an article?  Follow the options and instructions below to learn how to access articles online, in-print, and request them from other libraries.

Option 1: Full Text

Purple FUll Text button

Look for the purple "FUllText?" button next to an article record in the databases. If Furman has access to that article, even if it's not in that specific database, this button will connect you with the full-text of that article.

Option 2: Known Item Finder

Know the citation information for the resources you need? Fill in the details on the Known Item Finder to see if we have online access through the Furman University Libraries or if you need to make a request through Interlibrary Loan.

Option 3: Google Scholar

Sometimes articles are freely available on Google Scholar, but you can also setup Library Links in your Google Scholar Account to link out to our "FUll Text?" finder. Watch this quick instructional video on Setting Up Furman FUll Text Links in Google Scholar.
