Search Gale Literary Index

You can find criticisms on your author or work in most of the Library's print literature reference searching the Gale Literary Index.  Select either Author Search or Title Search to find where literary criticisms are indexed. 

As Chabot Library does NOT have every source in the Literary Index, be sure to take down at least 3 different resources.  Look at the Gale Resources listed on the right to then locate.

Keep in mind that reference sources do NOT leave the Library, so be prepared to have cash and time for photocopying (cost is ten cents per page).
