"Literary theory is the body of ideas and methods we use in the practical reading of literature.  It is a description of the underlying principles, one might say the tools, by which we attempt to understand literature (from Internet Encylopedia of Philosopy)".


Accessing E-Books Off-Campus

Our catalog, Primo, requires you to log in with your Aggie Access shortform username and password in order to view any content to which we subscribe.  If you haven't activated your Aggie Access account, the library staff and students will be happy to walk you through the process.

Citing Works

Primo has a handy feature designed to help you with formatting citations correctly.  When you click the details tab to view the bibliographic information for your book, there is an Actions drop menu in the upper right-hand corner.  Under that drop menu, is an option for Citation.  That will show you how the bibliographic information should look for different citation styles.

Word 2013 also has the option of building a bibliography and formatting the information in the style you want.

If those options do not work for you, there is a libguide specifically written for citing works correctly.
