Reference books available in the Reference area

These books are available in the Beekman and Mortola Library Reference areas.  If the item is only found in one library, the library is listed just before the call number.

These are selected sources and not a comprehensive list. Be sure to check the catalog for other helpful items as well as handbooks, dictionaries and guides to researching literature.

Search the Catalog


Subject Searching

Be sure to do a Subject search, using the author’s name (last name first) in the library's online catalog, then look for "Criticism and Interpretation" to find more critical materials.

Subject searches to try

  • "Fairy Tales"
  • "Folklore"
  • "Folk Literature"
  • and “Fables."

To narrow your searches to a particular library, use the "Limit this Search" button and select the appropriate library area such as Mortola Reference or Beekman Stacks from the pulldown list.  Then click to Submit to update the results list.
