Resources for those studying literature.

Finding Literary Criticism

At SLCC, your best bet for locating most literary criticism is to use the main search box on the library website (called OneSearch). There's a OneSearch box on this page for your convenience. For contemporary authors, use our new database, Contemporary Literature Criticism (linked below)!

Search tips:

  • Search by title of the work (i.e. "Doll's House," "Their Eyes Were Watching God," etc.)
  • Search by title and author (i.e. "Doll's House" Ibsen)
  • Search by author (i.e. Ibsen, Zora Neale Hurston, etc.)
  • Search any of the above and add the word "criticism" (i.e. "Doll's House" criticism, Zora Neale Hurston criticism, etc.)
  • Limit to publication types as necessary (i.e. Academic Journals is a popular choice for locating literary criticism)

If you get stuck, ask a librarian for help!
