This is a guide to help get you started with your assignment, which will primarily use MLA (the main database for literary studies and for researching specific texts), but might also look at other databases for research on historical, cultural, sociological background or themes of the text your are using. This guide also leads you to other research guides that will be might be useful to you for this class and for others through your time at Pomona. Use the menu on the left hand side to navigate through the sections, including a review of research strategy and library tutorials and a section on writing and citing.
Above all, when you're taking a class that requires research, please visit our Research Guides and remember that librarians are here to help you!
Below are some other databases that may be helpful for your research in Philosophy, Literary Studies, Religious Studies, and Women's Studies.
Library Search is the place to search our holdings for specific books and journals. It is also a good place to go for finding articles, books and other items -- electronic and physical -- in all subjects here and at most libraries in the US and many across the world.
Academic Search Premier is our main interdisciplinary database, not focused on any one subject, but a great place to start.
And if you are doing research in the sciences, try Web of Science as a start!
