ZSR Homepage Search & Primo
A good place to start for many topics.
MLA International Bibliography
Covers journal articles in the fields of literature comprehensively. Also includes references to individual book chapters, which is an important way of publishing in this field. You might want to limit your search to English.
Film and Television Literature Index
For criticism of films and television I suggest trying both this database and MLA.
Try the "Historical Period" limiter to specify the right years for your topic.
Watch out for variant spellings of names of works, characters, etc.
In MLA and other databases, frequently English-language articles use the original language name for a work. Example: Lola rennt in addition to Run Lola Run.
Use a * to cut off a word at its stem, e.g. socialis* will retrieve socialist or socialism
Type the word AND (or use the second row) if you want to enter more than one word that is not an exact phrase. berlin AND socialis*
If you can't use a star to search for spelling variants, use OR
"lola rennt" OR "run lola run"
Search operators AND OR NOT must be ALL CAPS to work in the Homepage/Primo search.
