detail the coming sessions below we have just highlighting a poem what's new again and a highlight and author and below again your subscription so what is your sub your institution subscribing to so let me start with using this search form this very basic search form searching everything in one go to get an overview of what's available in the database so let's start with searching for a phrase let's start with searching for just as an example lost generation which was a movement you could call it which included Hemingway and other famous authors so let's do a search and this wizard list will show you em what is available in the database divided in these four parts so that's authors there's different types of text this criticism first reference so let's start with the authors so there's Otto names that's even more so this not only the first five this little icon indicates that there are texts available so here's the older record which I will explain more in detail during next session if it could be photo this is the basic information about the author so indeed part of the Lost Generation and you can see the author page as a starting page for for all other resources about this author by or about this author in the database next step poetry which could could be by an author from The Lost Generation or it could add mention The Lost Generation so there's a link to the other page but then this link will take you to the the poem in this case they're a drama in the same way again linked to the auto page again indeed part of the Lost Generation then this link will take you to their text next step in a same way pros another famous author from The Lost Generation and here you get again this is full text from the Penguin Classics you recognize the icon I'm sure that's the whole text little works in journals in full-text both in HTML and PDF mentioning the the lost generation thus the text so again this is something I'm going to show you more in detail the calming session I'm going to skip this part just for now let's see next sport criticism a bell is the annual bibliography of English language and literature so there might be records in a full text and sometimes just citations that depends and then depending on your subscription there might also be records from MLA the Modern Language Association so here's an example of those records and then

going to show you more in detail at the next session I'm just going to give you one more example so let's say you're looking for a play called Faustus by an author called Marlowe so you can write like this if you just have a space in between the words it will say and automatically but you can't can write and as well if you would like to do so that's up to you it's the same thing okay I'm just going to browse down to the part I skipped in my formal search just show you depending on the subscriptions that you have available at your institution it could be please ask your librarian that you have access to the database early English books online and that database contains scanned original books from for instance the era of this author from as you can see and are links and those will take you to em scanned book the play doctor faustus by Christopher Marlowe so scan pages from the original book so just an example of a cross search that you can enable in the database finally for this session I'm just going to show you my archive this is a personal account that you can easily create yourselves create it just add a username password of your choice your email address if you wish to receive author alerts so I'm just going to log into my account this and this is something I'm going to show you more about during the next session but you can then save citations so that's a criticism record I've saved and you can save searches so in this case I did a search on quick search so that's my saved search and I can run it again I can add a note I can delete it I can also register for author alerts so that was the purpose of adding my email address so that means whenever I can then select authors and add authors to this list so whenever there are new items by or about this author added to
