Welcome to the library dashboard for undergraduate English Literature (ENGL) courses. The dashboard provides quick links to the resources you need to succeed in your course. Whether you are online or on-Grounds, UVA Library services and support are available to all students.
Your Librarian is Sherri Brown.
Each school/department at UVA is assigned a research librarian. Connect with Sherri for help with your assignments. This service is available to all ENGL students, and meeting with a librarian early in your research process can help you save time and find the best resources.
Sherri can help with any part of your research process: brainstorming a research topic/question and creating a search strategy; finding, evaluating and organizing your sources; integrating your sources in your writing and creating appropriate citations. No question is too basic! Sherri can meet with you in-person or online via Zoom.
Academic databases contain peer-reviewed articles, scientific papers, reports, and more. These are the most used databases for English literature-related research.
Virgo is the Library catalog, where you can find books, articles, and more.
For most courses in English, the preferred citation style is MLA (always check with your professor to confirm!).
