Welcome to Researching Writers and Their Work

This guide is designed to help students navigate independently through assignments requiring research on writers of all genres, as well as literary works like novels, short stories, poems, and plays. If you find you need additional help, please remember that MJC Research Librarians are happy to work with you and can help you in person at the reference desk, by phone, or email.

How This Guide Works:

  • You can work through the entire research guide by moving through the subject tabs on the left from top to bottom, or
  • You can pick and choose topics that interest you and jump around in the guide

For more thorough instructions on how to conduct successful research in general please check my Ready, Set, Research guide.
