How to begin searching for information for your paper!

There are several types of information available to English students through the ACC libraries, both in print form and electronically. The tabs along the top of the page provide details on the different types of resources listed below:


You can find a good selection of literature and literary criticism in our book collection. A book can provide detailed background and in-depth historical information about any given topic.

Reference Books

This covers encyclopedias, atlases, and other resources that are referred to for specific information. Go to these for definitions, shorter explanations, historical and biographical sketches.


Articles from journals, magazines, and major newspapers are the primary source for recent reviews and literary criticism on recently published works. ACC databases can help connect you to these articles.

Web Sites

The internet can provide a wealth of information, especially from government sources and professional organizations.
