Locating Literary Criticism - Workshops this Fall Semester

I am offering two workshops this semester on the basics of locating literary criticism.
Location: Library Classroom (main/1st floor of the library)
Wednesday, October 20 :  4:00-5:00     Literature Resource Center
 (literature portal to full-text literary criticism, work overviews, and biographical essays on major writers from every age and genre. Some film criticism and biography is included.)

Thursday, October 21 : 4:00-5:00    MLA International Bibliography
(citations to journal articles, books and book chapters on literary topics. Some film criticism is included.)

During both workshops, I hope to quickly review how to find books of literary criticism owned by the library.

These are "generic" workshops - not course-related. They are designed to introduce students to the basics of using two important resources for literature-related research.

I hope you will encourage your students (undergrad and grad) to attend. I am starting modestly, offering 1 workshop for each resource. While there is never a "good" time to offer ad hoc, non-compulsory workshops I hope students will take advantage of this opportunity if they have the time.

If you feel I should add an additional set of workshops at a different time of day, please let me know.
