Finding Relevant Reference Books

One way to find print reference books is to do an advanced search in our catalog. Here's an example:

Search keyword:  (British or English) and Literature, etc.

Limit location to:  HU Reference

Here is a quick link to that search for reference works on British or English Literature.

(But keep in mind, it's pretty broad - because English Literature will include American and other national lits in the English language).
