About the Author:

Review:

An indispensable guide for both novice and frustrated literary scholars....One-stop shopping for best-practices advice and significant source leads. (Library Journal)

Describing fully the uses of kinds of reference tools, providing illuminating examples in discussions of key individual resources, detailing techniques for finding kinds of information (including strategies for those without access to key resources such as AustLit [R4463]), illustrating research processes, and perpetuating the high standards reflected by the other volumes in the series, Literary Research and the Literary Research and the Literatures of Australia and New Zealand is the essential starting point for anyone working with literatures of the two countries. (Literary Research Guide)

Christenberry and Courtney are unabashed enthusiasts for ‘the rich and diverse body of creative works emanating from Australia and New Zealand’, and they have produced a wide-ranging, systematic introduction to research strategies and information sources, packed with intelligent practical advice on avoiding or overcoming likely pitfalls.... Christenberry and Courtney display a deep knowledge of print and online resources, and archival institutions (both within Australia and New Zealand, and elsewhere) with relevant collection strengths. They are up-to-date enough to give good accounts of the possibilities opened up by Trove, in particular in searching for newspapers and for archival and pictorial resources. The first two pages of Chapter 6 (Literary Reviews) locate the historical contexts of Australian and New Zealand writing and publishing with enviable precision and concision.... All in all this book is an impressively comprehensive and well-informed guide.

(Australian Library Journal)
