Search for primary works of literature by title or author in the Library Catalogue. If you have trouble finding specific short works such as a poem or short story chat online with library staff for one-to-one assistance.
For items about specific theories try word searching, or a subject search using the specific theory, such as feminist theory (This will not always work. If it doesn't try, using your terms as a word search).
You can also try these strategies in USearch but you will likely get more results (and less helpful results) than you can manage.

Include those you cite in your Works Cited list. The library subscribes to hundreds of databases in all disciplines. If you are looking for sources on topics that are not specifically literary, look for appropriate databases on the research guides for other subjects.
Search sources in the Background section (above) using the name of your theory of focus.
Also try the library catalogue. Make it a subject search and use the name of your theory (e.g. New Criticism). Or, use a word search with the name of an author and a theory (e.g. Achebe and postcolonial*)
