Library databases provide access to many forms of information online: journal articles, bibliographic citations, images, audio and video, data sets, news sources, and much more. You can access the NYU Libraries' over 400 databases using our Articles & Databases portal. Under the "Subject Specific" section of the portal, you'll find links to databases for particular subjects. Try the English Literature and Comparative Literature database lists for recommended databases for literary studies.
This usage works on most databases, but check 'Help' sections for supported search syntax.
