What Are Librarians Reading?

Looking for:
Everything about Literature and Authors?
Did you know that Jane Austen fainted when her parents announced they were moving the family to Bath? What was Robert Frost's opinion of his famous poem "The Road Not Taken" - romanticism or irony? Whether you're a student with an English report (or the parent of one) or just someone who wants to know more about your favorite authors and books, you can learn all this and more with Literature Resource Center. Enter the name of an author or title of a book to search for literary criticism, author biographies, scholarly articles and more, reprinted as they appeared in the original reference books. You can also get citation tools to help you correctly list the articles in a bibliography or works cited page.
To access Literature Resource Center, start at chandlerlibrary.org and hover your mouse over the purple Research & Learning tab. Then click A-Z List of Resources and scroll down to choose Literature Resource Center. You'll need your library card and PIN if you're signing in from home. Then enter your title or author, or try the advanced search options.
