This page outlines the resources for Doctor Quigley's Ways of Reading course. Below are the databases we covered in class as well as additional resources that may be useful in your research. 

Scholarly Databases for Articles: Contains MLA (covered in class) and other sources for finding scholarly peer reviewed criticism. The resources here are primarily for scholarly articles however, I have also included WorldCat which is a resource best utilized for finding books.

Dictionary Resources: Contains the OED, DNB, and DLB.

Current and Historical Newspapers: Contains resources for both British and American historical newspapers. ProQuest Newstand contains more recent 20th and 21st century newspapers.
