  • MLA International Bibliography - the premier index for English criticism.  Includes foreign language and hard to find resources.  all items are citation but links to full text in other sources are available.
     
  • JSTOR s a pdf archive of journal articles in various subject areas. Because it is an "archive," there are no current articles.
     
  • Project Muse - is a collection of more current pulications in full text, with a good concentration on the humanities and English criticism.
