The LIU Post LibGuides Directory is designed to assist students of all majors in their research endeavors. Simply select your field of study from the directory for general guidelines on how to compose a successful and thorough research paper.
Pictured below is the English and American Literature resource page.
The header contains links to resources (such as “Literary Criticism” and “Research and Writing Tools”) which explore all of the possible materials you will come in contact with while conducting research. If you are looking for help on a specific aspect of the research process, use the search bar at the upper right-hand corner of the webpage.
Let’s explore the “Literary Criticism” resource.
This page prominently features a how-to video, which provides a step-by-step guide to using the various databases available through LIU. As you can see, this page also offers links to the most popular databases for literature-based research (left-hand toolbar), information regarding the Inter-Library Loan program (ILLIAD, right-hand toolbar), as well as an overview of the LIU catalog (bottom center) are also offered.
The resources offered will vary depending on which subject you select. Can’t find a resource that answers your question? Use the handy “Ask a Librarian” link to contact an LIU Post librarian via telephone, text, e-mail, or chat room.
