Contemporary Authors First Revision Ref. Z1224 .C59
Contemporary Literary Criticism Ref. PN771 .C59
Literature and Its Times Ref. PN50 .L574 1997
Short Story Writers Ref. PN3373 .S398 2008
Twentieth Century Literary Criticism Ref. PN771 .G27
Novels for Students Ref. PN3365 .N68
Poetry for Students Ref. PN1101 .P756
Short Stories for Students Ref. PN3373 .S3844
Many of these reference books are also online.
After the Library Instruction session, if you feel that you need additional help, you can schedule a research appointment with a reference librarian. Stop by the library to set up an appointment. Often the librarian can help you right away!
