A comprehensive, diverse destination for the study of literature

Literary research, teaching and learning is evolving in exciting ways. Scholars are stepping beyond the Western canon to analyze diverse and lesser-known voices. Faculty are tapping multiple formats, like audio and video, to create immersive experiences for their students.

Developed in collaboration with faculty, scholars and librarians leading the call for a comprehensive literature resource, ProQuest One Literature is the destination for all aspects of literature research, teaching and learning.

A discipline-specific user experience offers scholars and students a path to understand and interpret authors, movements and diverse points of view, and expert indexing brings disparate formats and literary content together to support the unique needs of literary researchers.
