Top 10 Library Poetry Resources, pt. 2

Please see previous blog entry for the rest of the list.

5.WORKS OF POETRY

The General Stacks (Upper Level) are where most of our books that can be checked out are located. The P section covers language and literature. Specific poets or types of poetry (American, British, Italian, etc.) can be located throughout this section.

4. POETRY JOURNALS IN PRINT

In the library catalog on the library's web page, go to Advanced Search. Limit your location to Periodicals and search poetry as a subject. Here is a list of some of our print poetry journals.

3. AUDIO BOOKS

The Lower Level has a large collection of audio books. Here is a list of some of our poetry audio books.

2. POETRY FOR KIDS

Search juvenile poetry as a subject in the library catalog. The results will include over 300 titles in our Curriculum Collection on the Lower Level.

1. POETRY E-JOURNALS

To look through one poetry-based journal at a time, go to www.tarleton.edu/library and click the SFX link on the left, under Databases. Then enter Poe$ under the title tab. This will pull up a list of 20+ e-journals with poems, poets, or poetry in the title or subject categories. (Also included will be journals about Edgar Allen Poe). Click on a title to access the e-journal.


Bonus resource: We have over 400 e-books on poetry in our catalog. To find them, type in poetry as a subject and limit the location to online access.
