The Dictionary of Literary Biography print series has been a favorite with students and scholars for many years, often the first place to go to find authoritative biographical and critical essays on “the world’s most influential literary figures from all eras and genres.” The digitized version, now on trial for the use of the Villanova University community, includes the thousands of images contained in the print volumes.
From Phillis Wheatley to F. Scott Fitzgerald to Chinua Achebe, the DLB content covers writers’ “lives, works and careers” in a format that is fully searchable.
The trial is in effect until July 22 and includes access to Literature Criticism Online and Something About the Authors Online as well. (If the link takes you to the Databases A-Z page, return to the blog article to connect to the database. UNIT is currently working on this problem.)
