Find Articles Using Literature Resource Center

While you can find almost anything using the library catalog, sometimes it's easier and more efficient to search in a subject database because you are searching through a smaller pool of sources. Here is how to search using Literature Resource Center, a database I recommend for this assignment.

1. On the library homepage, click Articles and A-Z Databases.

2. On the next page, in the first dropdown menu that says All Subjects, choose Literature.

3. Click the link for Literature Resource Center.

4. Once you are in the database, you can try a few different searches. You can try searching for the title of your fairy tale, phrases like "fairy tales" or "folk tales" or maybe the word fables, or the author of your fairy tale. Your results will be encyclopedia articles that give a factual overview of your topic.

For your convenience, there is also a link to this database below, but it's important to know how to find it on your own.
