English, Literature & Writing (UNH Durham)

This guide will help you locate resources for writing, and for the study of literature at UNH, including American literature, English literature, and Shakespeare.

Why Use Books?

Books are good places to acquire in-depth information on a topic.

Remember: you won't necessarily be reading a book from cover to cover.


  • Use the index in the back and table of contents in the front to find relevant information quickly.
  • Check the bibliography to find other sources of similar information.

Monographs ("single - writing") are books dedicated to one subject.
