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.
