Search Institutional Respositories

Class Assessment


Institutional repositories are often open access databases of the scholarly output of a college or institution. As such, you can usually find scholarly material here that is not found in a traditional Google search, but may be the work of a graduate student, a PhD-degree seeking student, or a faculty member's lecture or conference papers. Some search words to try:

(literary themes + media type) literary themes + television (or movies or advertisement or songs, or video games, etc.)
(the theme + media type) race + movies or romance + reality television or romanticism + song lyrics
(title of story + pop culture) Midsummer Night's Dream + pop culture or The Cask of Amontillado + pop culture
