Library books

Books that may be of help to you have been placed on a small cart.  Please photocopy any of the articles that you find in these books. 

  • Library Catalog
    Search on Hero and the Crown or Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Use the Titlepeek feature to locate book reviews about books.
  • Destiny Quest
    The same library catalog with a different look, more visual.

Gale Literature Resource Center

Your VERY best bet for locating book reviews and critical essays.   You can search by author or by title of the book you are researching.

Other Literary Resources

  • Ebscohost via Power Library
    You can find additional book reviews at Ebsco, a magazine/journal/newspaper database. From the main menu, scroll down to General Reference->Ebscohost->Ebscohost Web->Choose Newspaper Source Plus and MasterFile Main Edition. Search on your book. Limit to full text. A PA public library card needed from home.
  • SIRS Researcher
    A few short articles about McKinley, more on Rowling. ID&PW needed from home.
  • Yahoo's Science Fiction and Fantasy Directory
    If you feel like searching through sites covering this genre, you can use this directory.

Google scholar

You can always try to locate additional academic articles using Google scholar.  However, you are often directed to subscription only databases like our Literature Resource Center, which you can't access without $, or to ebooks that you can buy. 



If you use an article from Gale's Literary Resource Center, copy, paste, and edit the citation.  They are usually pretty accurate except for capitalization and abbreviations.  Don't forget, the library has several copies of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 7th Ed.  If you can't find an example of a source in our KHS handout, check the complete handbook for help.  Even better, ask your teacher or Ms. Teixeira for assistance.
