Literary Reference Center - EBSCO database

I stumbled upon this module recently and was delighted with the content.

Every Masterplots series is available full-text, (African American Literature, American Fiction, Christian Literature , Drama, Juvenile & Young Adult, Nonfiction, Poetry, Short Story, Women’s Literature, World Fiction), along with other Salem Press publications like Critical Survey of... (Drama, Long Fiction, Mystery & Detective Fiction, Poetry and Short Fiction) and Magill's Survey of...(American Literature, World Literature, etc.).

Conduct a simple search -- Kate Chopin and Survey of American Literature. When you open the first record, scroll down to the Cross References. There is amazing content here, with all the EBSCO bells and whistles. Check out the pull down menus, too. There are so many ways to tailor the searches! I can't wait for my next Lit Crit class...
