The Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature, better known as ABELL, "contains 880,000 records, covering monographs, periodical articles, critical editions of literary works, book reviews and collections of essays published anywhere in the world from 1920 onwards."
ABELL frequently indexes new material and regularly add thousands of citations each year, making it a valuable resource for finding up-to-date scholarship. This guide will provide an introduction to using ABELL for your research.
ABELL can be accessed on the Literatures and Languages Library's homepage, under the Quick Links section; in Online Journals and Databases (where all of our Library's databases "live"); or you can access it by clicking here.
