ENGL 100 Prof. Cross: Bogeys, Monsters, Ghosts & More: Library Article Databases

This is a course guide for Prof. Cross's research and writing assignment

Library Article Databases

You're likely to find articles about your bogey or monster in the JSTOR database. These are generally longer peer reviewed articles from academic journals. You don't need to read the entire article to use it for your paper -- just don't forget to cite it. At the end of each article, you'll usually find an extensive list of references that include other articles of interest. Ask a librarian for help finding these if you need it!

Gale E-Books is an online encyclopedia database to get you started on finding information about your monster. These secondary sources are brief, academic quality articles from one to three pages long. They are not peer reviewed journal articles. They do often include a list of references suggesting books you can consult. To get started, try a simple keyword search.

Literature Resource Center is an easy to search library article database containing up-to-date biographical information, overviews, full-text literary criticism and reviews on thousands of authors in all disciplines, from all time periods and from around the world. You will find articles referencing most types of bogeys and monsters in this database -- usually in the form of articles discussing the works of literature/film that include them.
