Welcome

EH203 & 204 -- English Literature:  This Library Guide directs you to sources for information on English (British) writers from the Anglo-Saxon Old English period to the present.  The resources presented are selected and representative, not comprehensive, and are intended to provide a sampler of all the information sources available on English literature accessible via the Houston Cole Library.  Among these resources are print and electronic books, print reference books, electronic databases and print journals, and other information formats such as streaming video.

Topic Overview

Book Series from Academic Publishers

Several academic publishers publish book series on literature or individual authors.  Sometimes a publishing house produces more than one series of this nature, so that it becomes easier to keep up with publishers rather than with series titles.  Below is a list of some (but only some) of the publishers who fall into this category.  To see what is available in any of these series for the author you are studying, use the catalog search widget in the box to your right, toggled to Advanced Search.  Put your author's name, in natural order, as a phrase (center column drop-down menu), in the top search box and in the middle search box, also as a phrase, the name of the publisher or the italicized series title, and <Search>.

Once you have before you the JaxCat catalog record for a book in any one of these series, you sometimes can discover what other books in that series Houston Cole Library owns or has access to by simply clicking on the underscored words in the "series" line for that record.

Clicking on the more link beneath the series title will surface descriptive information about that series.
