How do I find literature information?
As discussed in the orientation, three areas of concentration should be part of your research: Writing about Literature, Literary Criticism and Literary Analysis. The Plant City campus library has access to the circulating titles shown in the Book and eBook Section of this Guide to assist in this assignment
The book titles listed below are available for check-out through the Plant City Campus library...all you need is your HawkCard Student ID number. For the books titles with eBook listed as the Call Number, to access the book click on the title.
Literature Criticism Reference Books
In order to locate information such as literary criticism, work summaries, or biographical information on authors you will need to utilize one of the literary criticism books listed below or search one of the library databases.
Twentieth Century Literary Criticism is available both in print and online. The print version is the "big brown book" discussed in the orientation and can be found on the book shelves next to the student computers. To access the online version see instructions in the Finding Books page of this LibGuide.
Literature Criticism Databases
We looked at four literature databases in the library orientation. If you would like to use the databases click either of the links below:
When I click on the links above it asks me for a borrower ID and password? What do I use?
Your borrower ID is your 7-digit student ID number. The password should be the last 4 digits of your student ID number. If that does not work, try the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number. If you still cannot get into the databases, please contact the library and we will try to assist you.
FYI - if you access your courses using Canvas you no longer have to sign into the databases using your student ID. Utilizing the HCC Libraries Online tab in Canvas automatically signs you into the electronic databases.
