Gale literature databases now available


June 12, 2010 – Two literature databases from Gale are now available:

Literature Criticism Online from Gale

Includes full text of 3 references works:

Short Story Criticism
most-studied short story writers with a historical survey of the critical response to their work
Drama Criticism
For each play or playwright: critical opinion, a biographical sketch, a chronological list of the writer's major works and more
Children's Literature Review
most popular and influential authors of the genre are assessed through criticism of their major works

Something About the Author Online from Gale 

Online access to all volumes ever printed in Gale's Something About the Author series, which examines the lives and works of authors and illustrators for children and young adults. Includes both the main series and Something About the Author Autobiography series, totaling more than 217 volumes, 12,000 entries, and nearly 17,000 images - all delivered in an easy-to-use format that matches the exact look and feel of the print originals.

These two databases can also be searched simultaneously. They are a great compliment to the Literature Resource Center from Gale database.
