English Literature: Home

A guide to finding information in English literature. Includes links to key resources and sources of help.

Welcome to the English Literature guide. Use the tabs above to explore resources in this subject.

Most of the English Literature books are on the 4th Floor of the Library. You'll find books in this subject in both the 'Books' and 'Large books' sections, the Enterprise catalogue will indicate in which section a book is located.

We also have a wide range of e-books and e-journals relating to English Literature. See the Books and Journal articles tabs in this guide for more information.

If the book that you need is only available in the University Library, please contact Kim to find out if an electronic version can be purchased or accessed. We may be able to get hold of books through a range of difference routes, but this will depend on the book - so please get in touch to ask if you need a book that you cannot read online:
