Literary and Cultural Studies

This guide will help you locate resources in literary and cultural studies. The emphasis is on material available in the University of Maryland Libraries, but some Internet sources are also included


The database Dissertations & Theses Global is the definitive source for information about doctoral dissertations and master's theses. Items not available full-text in the database or in print in the UM Libraries can be requested via Interlibrary Loan. For more information see: Theses and Dissertations at University of Maryland Libraries.

DRUM: Digital Repository at UM

All UM theses and dissertations completed since 2003 are archived in UM's Digital Repository, DRUM. Access to some dissertations may be restricted at the request of the authors. Print copies of many of these and all other UM dissertations can be found in the Maryland Collection.
