FYS 100 (30) Crime & Punishment in Russian Fiction and Film (Brandenberger): Finding Books, Articles, & More

Where to Start Searching:

OneSearch is the library catalog, there you can search almost everything in the library at once- books, media, news sources, scholarly journals, and more.

Library databases are smaller collections of scholarly articles, news sources, images, media and more, which may be organized thematically on different topics.

Search Tips:

  • When searching for an author's name there may be several transliterations (Dostoevsky vs Dostoevskii) from Russian
  • Search under official Library of Congress subject headings for different authors or topics
    • Dostoyevsky, Fyodor 
    • Russian Literature
  • Decide what types of resources you are looking for (books, chapters, scholarly articles, news, etc.) and use the appropriate filters
  • Limit your search to scholarly or peer-reviewed work if desired using the filters

If you can't find an article or book you need, check out our service called interlibrary loan - we can request materials from other libraries if we don't have them at UR.
