When to Use Them
Use articles from scholarly journals when doing in-depth research or when you're interested in a specific aspect of an author's work. Articles are more narrowly focused than books. For example, it would be easier to find an article about the theme of marriage in Edith Wharton's Custom of the Country than one that provides an overview of her works.
Where to Find Them
To locate scholarly literary criticism, first use one of the databases below to locate references to articles. Then follow the "Find It" link to see if our library has the journal in which the article is published. Scholarly articles can also be located by using bibliographies as explained in the previous section.
