Literature Resource Center provides direct access to biographies, bibliographies and critical analysis of authors from every age and literary discipline in a single Internet-searchable service. Its resources cover more than 90,000 novelists, poets, essayists, journalists and other writers, with additional in-depth coverage of 2,500 of the most-studied authors. New and updated material is added monthly. In addition to biographical, bibliographical and contextual information from the Contemporary Authors and Dictionary of Literary Biography databases, users can access full-text criticism from the Contemporary Literary Criticism Select database, as well as unique information not found in any other source. This coverage of authors of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, history and journalism is enhanced through partnerships with Chadwyck-Healey's Literature Online and Macmillan Reference's Scribner Writers Series and Twayne's Authors Series.
