Simple Research Aids


Essential Tools

  • MLA International Bibliography - The MLA International Bibliography is a subject index for books and articles published on modern languages, literatures, folklore, and linguistics.
    • OCLC WorldCat - Over 62 million records describing books, periodicals, sound recordings, videos, musical scores, archival materials, maps, electronic resources, and much more, in over 400 different languages. Shows what materials are held by over 57,000 libraries worldwide (including most libraries in North America, and the national libraries of Australia and many Western European countries). Incorporates all records from the Research Libraries Group (RLG) Union Catalog (RLIN).
    • JSTOR - Provides full-text access to the archives of core scholarly journals in the arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences. Includes content from six of the ten JSTOR Multidisciplinary Collections (Arts & Sciences I, II, III, IV, and VII; and Life Sciences) and nearly all of the JSTOR Discipline-Specific Collections (Biological Sciences, Business, Ecology & Botany, Health & General Sciences, Language & Literature, Mathematics & Statistics, and Music).
    • Project MUSE - Full-text access to over 100 scholarly journals in the arts and humanities, social sciences and mathematics published by Johns Hopkins University Press and other university presses (Duke, Hawaii, Indiana, MIT, Penn State, etc.).
    • English Short Title Catalogue (British Library) - The 'English Short Title Catalogue' (ESTC) is a comprehensive, international union catalogue listing early books, serials, newspapers and selected ephemera printed before 1801. It contains catalogue entries for items issued in Britain, Ireland, overseas territories under British colonial rule, and the United States. Also included is material printed elsewhere which contains significant text in English, Welsh, Irish or Gaelic, as well as any book falsely claiming to have been printed in London. The database contains nearly 470,000 entries, and represents the holdings of some 2,000 libraries world-wide.
    • COPAC - The COPAC library catalogue gives free access to the merged online catalogues of major University and National Libraries in the UK and Ireland, including the British Library.

    Recommended Tools

    • ArchiveGrid - ArchiveGrid is a useful source for locating archival and manuscript material. It searches finding aids and catalog records from institutions around the world. 
    • ArticlesPlus - ArticlesPlus is perhaps best described as "Google for the library's online content ." From a single search box, ArticlesPlus searches full-text content as well as metadata from a wide variety of sources and returns a list of relevancy-ranked results. (NOTE: MLA International Biography is not searched by ArticlesPlus)

      Connecting with Other U-M Researchers

      The University of Michigan campus is large enough and de-centralized enough that scholars across the curriculum often end up working on similar fields of inquiry without knowing it. The following links can help you identify possible partners for collaboration.

      * SAW (Sponsored Awards on the Web) is searchable web interface to University's database of sponsored proposal and awards (eResearchPM). SAW contains financial and demographic information relative to awarded proposals submitted through DRDA on a Proposal Approval Form since 1988.

      * COS Scholar Universe™ brings a world of research and scholarship to one easily searchable database. With 2 million profiles, it helps researchers and academics connect with colleagues with shared interests while expanding their networks to include previously unknown people working in related fields or in other areas of the world.
