Junior Thesis Assignments
At the Library and Online!
If you're working on a junior thesis assignment, you may find some helpful in-house sources through our Literary Criticism Libguide created in the past.  Also try our JR THESIS NOVELS Libguide.  We will try to update both Libguides for current assignments, but in the meantime, just come visit the Information Desk and we'll show you what we've got.

From outside the library, be sure to visit our literature database!
