The destination for all aspects of literature research, teaching and learning

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 now 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.
