Spotlight on the Collection (new!) - Two Databases

During the summer, the UVM Libraries purchased access to two fabulous resources. Please let me know if you have any questions about using these databases.

Dictionary of Literary Biography Complete Online  (DLB) [Remote Access-UVM Affiliates Only]
Searchable database of full-text literary biographies (including critical response to literary works) profiling past and present authors, historians, journalists, screenwriters, publishers, and playwrights worldwide from every era.

This is the online version of the well-known "blue books" in the Reference Collection. Literature Resource Center provides the partial contents of this set-text only, but this new resource is the complete version, available in pdf format-with images.

Another full-text historical newspaper has been added to our stable of historical full-text newspapers.

Times Digital Archive 1785-1985 (Times of London)  [Remote Access - UVM Affiliates Only]
Full-text of the Times of London, 1785-1985.  Search or browse full-page images of the paper.

For a list of full-text newspapers (current and historical) useful for your research see the "Newspaper Articles" tab in the English & American Literature subject guide and the Film & Television Studies subject guide.

Access these resources from the Library website:
