Welcome to the LibGuide for research in English literature for distance students!

This guide will help you find the resuorces you need to conduct research and writing in English literary studies if you are studying outside of Regina.

The tabs above will give you access to a variety of resources for literary research, with information on accessing materials and resources from off-campus and outside Regina. 

If you require assistance at any stage of research or writing, please contact Kate Cushon, the Liaison Librarian for English.

Connecting from Off Campus?

If you're connecting from off campus, most resources should automatically direct you to the proxy page to authenticate your account; then you'll be forwarded automatically to the resource you requested.

Automatic redirect not happening?  Being asked for a password you don't have?  Denied access?  Use the authentication page to verify that you are a University of Regina student, then try again.

Still not working?  Contact ITS.

Boolean Searching

Boolean searching will make all of your searching FASTER and more PRECISE.  See this short video for a primer on how Boolean works in databases and catalogues.  Even if you already know some Boolean, this is a good refresher and may teach you a trick or two.
