Welcome to the English and American Literature Research Guide!

This guide provides information about English and American literature resources at the University of Delaware Library. Click the subject tabs (above) to learn about the Library's collections and services. Access e-books, e-journals, e-newspapers and databases. Included are links to useful websites and citation management tools.

Search DELCAT Discovery to Find Library Resources

Search DELCAT Discovery to find library resources related to your research topic. Users can limit searches to books, journals and other items held by the University of Delaware Library or search the entire WorldCat database that encompasses millions of titles in libraries throughout the world.

UD items appear at or near the top of the results display. Material not held by the Library (labeled WorldCat Libraries) can be requested via a link that automatically generates an interlibrary loan request form.

At this time, call number browsing is available from the Call Number Browse web page.

Search Tips

  • Place quotation marks around keyword phrases (e.g., "the sun also rises" or "journal of american history").
  • It is important to click either "View all formats and languages" or "View all editions" to obtain complete information about library holdings. Both links connect to the same page.
  • Publisher names and locations can be searched by adding pb: and pl: in front of the keywords (e.g., pb:ollier and pl:london). See Searching WorldCat: Index Quick Reference for other index labels.
  • Boolean logic connectors (AND, OR) must be capitalized (e.g., "animal rights" OR "animal welfare").
