A NEW LISTING for The Literary Encyclopedia has been added to the Find Databases service.

The resource was previous only discoverable as an ejournal. In its new database listing, the encyclopedia is described as follows:

The Literary Encyclopedia is a wide-ranging reference work focused on literary and cultural history. The encyclopedia includes biographies of major and minor writers; scholarly descriptions of these authors’ texts; and reflective and analytical essays on literary, cultural and historical matters. It aims to cover the full breath of world literature including English, American, German, Russian, Italian, French, and Classical literatures, and a growing body of material covering Hispanic, Japanese, Canadian, East European and various postcolonial literatures.

Access to the resource is by university username and password, on-campus and off-campus.
