Literary Encyclopedia – Trial Access

The library has set up a trial for the Literary Encyclopedia.

The Literary Encyclopedia was founded in 1998 to provide a reliable scholarly online literary reference work for English-language readers in higher education.  It takes world literature as its field and publishes biographies of major and minor writers, and scholarly descriptions of all interesting texts, including those often neglected. It provides an understanding of the social contexts in which this writing was produced.

In QUB  you may access the site here: This has been enabled until June 1 and anyone with a email address wishing to access the resource off campus can set up a personal account via email verification.

Please let us know what you think of the resource by filling in the online survey here:
