Book Studies: Finding articles

Beginning in 2009-2010, Colorado College offers a thematic minor in The Book (the past, present, and future of the written word in its material form).

Finding articles

These are some good article databases for Book Studies:

JSTOR coverage: late 1800's - most recent 0-5 years
Archival access to many scholarly periodicals. Some titles include current issues while others have a moving wall imposed on them.
Humanities International Complete coverage: 1929 - current
A comprehensive humanities database, with almost 500 full text titles and indexing and abstracting for more than 1,700 titles. Subject areas include (but are not limited to) literature, philosophy, the arts, history, culture-oriented and multi-disciplinary humanities titles with some coverage going back as far as 1929. This database replaces Humanities Abstracts.
