Books on literary criticism of novels can be found in the library by checking the library catalog for research materials on the subject. A search by author or by the title of the work can be made by inserting the search terms in either the Words or Phrase or Subject search boxes. The terms criticism or bibliography may be added to the author or title. If this does not work, look for criticisms or bibliographies on the author or novels in general. Also the textbook will probably offer a list of works about the novel or author. Check the library catalog to see if the library has copies of the works cited.
