Database of the Month: Literature Online (LION)

Provided by ProQuest, Literature Online (LION) is a library database that focuses on the study of literature and English.  The publisher describes it as:
"It is a fully integrated service that combines the texts of over 355,000 literary works with a vast library of key criticism and reference resources. Literature Online’s collection of accurate poetry, prose and drama is relied upon by researchers around the world on a daily basis and the essential criticism and reference resources, including an ever-growing library of full-text journals and author biographies, helps keep you up to date on the latest research into every aspect of literary and linguistic study." - ProQuest
Also of note, Literature Online contains the Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature, or what is known as the ABELL Index.  ABELL contains over 880,000 citations for books, articles and reviews in the field of English studies and covers from 1920 to the present day.  Literature Online maintains a Complete Contents page, allowing researchers to view the database's contents or delve deeper into a single resource.
