Lang&Lit: EH203 & 204 -- Survey of English Literature : Websites, Videos, and LibGuides from Other Campuses

This Library Guide directs you to print and electronic information sources for the survey courses in English Literature. The Guide is selective, not comprehensive; the sources listed are representative of their type.

Page Overview

This page contains links to internet sources relevant to English Literature as well as a listing of streaming video links (non-subject specific) provided by Houston Cole Library.  Links to LibGuides from other campuses also are provided, but it must be kept in mind that these Guides have a different primary audience than the JSU community and probably include resources unique to their institutions.  Ignore these campus-specific bits of information and focus on the more generally-applicable material provided.


Subscription Streaming Video Collections

The links below direct to the streaming video collections to which Houston Cole Library subscribes, which contain films pertaining to literature or theatre.  The scope of most of the collections, however, is broader than just literature or theatre, so some close searching may be required once a particular collection is accessed.

To see more of Houston Cole Library's roster of streaming video collections, redirect to this LibGuide:

Videos Online



For those wishing to do their own searches for videos:

1. Go to Google Search (Basic, not Advanced).  

2. Within quotation marks (so multi-word search terms still will be searched as a unit), type in the subject of the video(s) you seek.

3. Either click on the top index for Videos or type the word video one space behind the closed quotation mark.  Your choice makes a difference.

   a. Google owns Youtube, so clicking on Videos will surface Youtube videos to the top of the results list.

   b. Typing video into the search box varies the results, often letting non-Youtube videos like Vimeo surface near the top of the list.

















LibGuides from Other Campuses

Because these LibGuides are created for a non-JSU primary audience, they may include materials not accessible via Houston Cole Library.  Therefore, students using these Guides should attempt to single out and focus on the more generally applicable sections, which are identified in the descriptive text for each link.
