Answer

Follow the link below to our Databases by Subject Libguide and select the Literature tab.  This will present you with our available literature databases.  Select a database to enter and search.  Here are some tips for using each one:

Gale Literature Resources: Go to Person Search and search for Queen Elizabeth I.  Follow the link to 157 articles.  Not all of these articles are exclusively about Elizabeth's writings; some are about the Elizabethan period of literature.  From the search bar on the left, you can narrow the search down by entering additional search criteria and searching with the 'search within results' box checked.

EBSCO: Academic Search Complete: This is a multidisciplinary database, so there will be historical articles about Elizabeth as well as ones devoted to her writings.  You can retrieve all articles about Elizabeth by entering this search string: ZP "elizabeth i, queen of england, 1533-1603", or try a keyword search (ex. writings of queen elizabeth I).  You could narrow a search through the search limiters on the left side of the screen or by entering additional words in the search bar (ex. ZP "elizabeth i, queen of england, 1533-1603" AND literature).  If you're interested in a particular writing of Elizabeth's, you can try entering its title instead.  Put the title in quotes to reduce the number of irrelevant results that will be retrieved (ex. "Doubt of Duture Foes").
