Literature Online is Changing

ProQuest Literature Online provides Aberystwyth University students and staff with access to a vast number of literary texts as well as collections of reference and critical materials. It is an essential resource for the study and teaching of English literature, poetry, and drama.

Things may look different the next time you access Literature Online - ProQuest has developed a brand new interface and the existing version will be taken offline in May 2014. Try the new LiteratureOnline now.

Here's a word from ProQuest:

The new Literature Online features all the existing content - the more than 350,000 works of poetry, prose and drama, the ever-growing full-text journal collection, the vast library of reference resources such as biographies, encyclopedias and companions, and the exclusive audio and video offerings - as well as the bespoke and specialist search features and functionalities. Now, however, that advanced functionality and in-demand content has been paired with a modern search interface which is more intuitive and straightforward to use and navigate. What's more, Literature Online is now fully mobile-compatible, meaning you can use it on tablets or smartphones, wherever and whenever you need it. 


My Archive – copy any saved records
This is an area of the service where you can create a personal store of saved items and searches. Unfortunately, My Archive content from the existing version of Literature Online will not be available in the new version.  So don't get caught out – email or print your saved items today!  You never know, in the process you may re-discover something valuable.

A full series of walk-throughs and learning resources for using the new platform are available in the 
Literature Online LibGuide.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange group training or personal tuition, please contact Joy Cadwallader, subject librarian for English and Creative Writing (01970621908/
