The primary purpose of this research guide is to assist researchers interested in comparative literary studies in conducting research using Yale Library's resources and services. The cross-national and interdisciplinary aspects of Comparative Literature make it a very broad field, and while you will find a variety of frequently used resources in this guide, the the list of sources is suggestive rather than comprehensive. If you are working primarily in a different language or national literature, you may wish to take a look at the Related Guides section below.
The library is here to help! If you have a research-related question, or to schedule an appointment with the subject librarian, use the email function and calendar scheduler in the Librarian box below.
Quicksearch is the Yale Library discovery tool that allows you to search for books, articles, data sets, images, databases, digital collections and more.
To search for books or journals (not journal articles, but entire journals, e.g. The New Yorker) click the "Books+" link underneath the main search bar. This will allow you to select the type of resource you are searching for: e.g. "Journal Title."
