Now in its sixth edition, the Modern Language Association’s Literary Research Guide has long been considered a standard reference resource for literary students and scholars. Covering American Literature, British Literature, other Literatures in English, and related topics, this low-cost guide consists of citations and annotations for reference works, general histories, and surveys. Each annotation provides a full description and evaluation. Organized into sections and categories, users can quickly browse through entries. Some minor issues with the search interface were found. No options exist for saving or e-mailing citations and annotations. Some gaps in coverage were found, especially for Internet resources. Literary Research Guide also provides a valuable overview of the steps involved in the research process.
