These databases are useful for finding articles, essays, and book chapters on language, literature, linguistics, and related topics.

Remember that if the full text of an article you want to read is not available in the database you are searching, you should use  Journal Titles  to learn whether we have access and by what means (another database, the publisher's web site, or the print collection in Boatwright).

    If We Don't Have it

    If we don't have the journal you need, you can borrow it through our Interlibrary Loan Service.
