English Literature: eResources

This is a guide to provide information to students of the English Literature programme in NTU's School of Humanities.


Below is a selection of electronic resources (eResources) related to English literature. These e-resources may include full-text journal articles, bibliographies, reference materials and others, and you can access them either from their journal pages, or from expansive databases that aggregate resources from multiple journals or sources.

This page is divided into two major sections - on the left are Journals, and on the right are Databases and Websites.

The Journals section are organized into the different focuses of literary journals, with the sections corresponding to aspects of the undergraduate programme for English literature in NTU. Please refer to the topic guides for more detailed resources for each aspect, or for more specialized aspects.

Core Databases section lists down popular academic databases in the discipline - your research should start from one of these. Specialist Sites feature websites that are made freely available online by expert groups or societies to share resources on specific literary topics. Full Text Archives lists resources of mostly literary texts that are no longer copyrighted and can be made available online for free for everyone.

For each of the eResources listed, simply click on the title to access it directly. A brief description of each eResource and its access information is also included to give you an idea of the data or time coverage. 

To browse more eResources, please visit our A-Z collections listing, or ask a librarian for a recommendation.

There are a large number of academic and authoritative websites that curate, gather and provide links and directories to sources of academic information and grey literature.

The selection below lists a couple of the more relevant ones for English Literature in general. These sites also tend to have resources for other humanities and social sciences, due to their generalist nature.
