Library Updates due to COVID-19 Closures

All branches of the University of Texas Libraries, including the Perry-Castañeda Library, are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are unable to provide access to the print collections. 

However, library staff are working hard from home to continue our services. Gina Bastone, the English Librarian, is available for:

  • Research consults via Zoom
  • Questions over email
  • Library purchase requests for ebooks only. (We are not buying new print books at this time.)

For the most up-to-date information about library services, please check the Libraries Service Continuity guide.

Additionally, many publishers and database vendors have temporarily opened their online content to us. Please see this guide about temporary access for details. 


Welcome to the library guide for research in Comparative Literature! On this guide you'll find links to relevant library resources, such as databases of scholarly journals, ebook collections, reference tools, and others. 

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of Comparative Literature, you may need the expertise of multiple subject liaison librarians. Links to relevant subject guides are provided on the left side menu. If you are unsure where to start your research or who to contact, please reach out Gina Bastone, Humanities Liaison Librarian.
