This online database provides full-text access, in either PDF or HTML format, to works of literary criticism, essays, biographical pieces; and bibliographic information from hundreds of scholarly journals, magazines, reference books and monographs. Users may customize the interface by choosing from 13 languages, including German, English, Spanish and Turkish. A personalized project folder is also available.

An engaging home page includes these sections: "featured authors"; "reference shelf" (featuring citation help from the Modern Language Association and American Psychological Association style guides, the American Heritage Dictionary and Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature); "content spotlight" (providing links to new or high interest content, such as the entry for Jane Austen from Bloom's Major Novelist, a "glossary" of literary criticism and theory terms); and the "book highlights" section, which alerts users to recent additions of full-text monographs such as the Routledge Companion to Russian Literature and Murder by the Book?: Crime Fiction and Feminism.

Users can browse "authors" and "works" by the most popular entries or the entire section. "Works" include these document types: biographies, literary criticism, master plots, interviews, reviews, poems and stories, reference books and periodicals. Basic and advance searching is possible. The advanced searching feature offers dozens of functions for complex queries. Literary Reference Center offers students and teachers an abundance of material to guide and inform their exploration of literature. Ernie Cox, Libn., St. Timothy's School, Raleigh, NC
