If you're taking English 101 at NYU, this page is designed to introduce you to some of the resources you'll use most often. Feel free to explore the rest of this guide for a sense of what other tools and materials the NYU Libraries have to offer. And if you find this guide useful, remember that we have library research guides for many subjects. Check them out here:
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, physical access to the NYU Libraries is currently restricted. However, you can still use online materials, consult with librarians, and request print materials for contactless pickup or delivery. Find the latest information on our current services and policies here:

Library databases help you find online content that the NYU Libraries subscribe to. Below are some of the databases you'll find most useful for literature research. You can get to these and other databases via the Articles & Databases tab from the main NYU Libraries website; note that we have a longer list of databases for English literature listed there.
