Literature Research LRC@TCC

This orientation will help you acquire the skills necessary to conduct literary research for a term paper or other assignment. Most works of literature were written before the computer age so information you seek may be in printed resources. You will find books by authors, books about authors, books about an author's work. You will also find magazine and journal and newspaper articles in library databases. Basic library research skills should be reviewed before venturing on to literature research.
