Arts and Humanities Search

Search for either a primary text or a work of criticism as "Cited Reference." The database searches the footnotes of a large set of scholarly journals. Cited titles are abbreviated in somewhat unpredictable ways. Search for "Cited Reference" keywords in combination with an author's last name as "Cited Author." To search for a contemporary critic's work, type the last name and first initial of the author's name, then choose "Cited Author Phrase" and look for matches in the cited author index, linked under the icon to the right of the search field.
