E-aineistojen käyttöehdot: Literature Online Fulltext - LION (PQ)


Literature Online is the leading online resource for the study and teaching of literature in English. It is a fully integrated service that combines the texts of over 355,000 literary works with a vast library of key criticism and reference resources. Literature Online’s collection of accurate poetry, prose and drama is relied upon by researchers around the world on a daily basis and the essential criticism and reference resources, including an ever-growing library of full-text journals and author biographies, helps keep you up to date on the latest research into every aspect of literary and linguistic study.

Literature Online is updated at least nine times a year; the What's New page highlights new additions to our primary texts and full-text journal collections, together with information on new and revised biographies, and key feature enhancements.
