Literature: Print Indexes

Print Indexes

Humanities Index

This is a print index of arts and humanities journals (April 1974 to September 2000). Each bound volume covers one year’s worth of articles. Citations to articles are arranged alphabetically by article title, article author, or subject. To locate articles about an author, search by the author’s last name. Within the citation, the journal title is often abbreviated; there is a list of journal abbreviations at the beginning of each volume.

The Humanities Index is located in the Library Reference collection.

Gale Literary Series

The Gale literary series located in the Reference section of the library supplements information available in the Literature Resource Center database. Check a current print Cumulative Index to find the most recent entry in one of the Gale literary series. Each Literary Criticism Cumulative Index includes entries for all the Gale literary series. The Literary Criticism Cumulative Index directs users to the series and volume with the full text content. Use the guide below to locate the appropriate series.
