Who Knew? Gale Literary Database

Need to pick an author for a report but don’t know where to start? Gale Literary Database(link), found under Contemporary Authors, is a great way for students who have an idea but need help narrowing down their choices.

A useful feature in Gale Literary Database is the “Dictionary of Literary Biography.”  It allows users to find authors by browsing:

  • genre
  • topic
  • age
  • nationality
