To access our EBSCO databases, start at our libguides homepage.(link below)

In the box with the big blue arrow, click on 'access our entire database'

From there, select the subject tab 'Literature'

To access our databases from Off-Campus, you will need to be a College of the Mainland student, staff or community user. You will need your COM ID (7 digits, add leading zero(s) if needed)

If you need to use EBSCO, select the first link under Literature 'Academic Search Complete'

Search "romeo and juliet". By putting in the quotation marks, you will get articles with that phrase in the article.  As you are typing the search, you will see some other suggestions that might help limit your search to a particular aspect of the play.

Click on Search

Once you get to your search results, on the left of the screen, under Limit To you want to limit your search to 'Full Text' items and Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) journals.

My search still has 2,489 results.

You can limit your results further using the 'Subject: Thesaurus' or 'Subject' limits.  After you click on them, you will see a few Subjects listed.  Click on the 'Show more' to find other possible subject limits.  Use this option to narrow down your search to the aspect of Romeo and Juliet that interests you.
