Cannon Memorial Library's Online Library Resources

E-resources are available through CML! Remember, try using a scholarly E-book in your paper! We looked at the Oxford Encyclopedia of British Literature (E-reference resource) during the Library Instruction, but there are so many more to look at as well.

Finally, we looked to see if we carried the full-text of a journal, Eighteenth Century Fiction, through the A-Z Journal List. Here is the result from that search:

    Academic Search Premier  2001 to present  (Embargo: 6 months)

Go to EBSCO's Academic Search Premier Package, and put this journal title in the Advanced Search, plus a keyword.
