Online Databases

BiC is best for researching biographical information on Authors and other Historical Figures. You can often find primary sources, interviews, and images as well.
Use this for actors, actresses, directors, and authors.

LRC is great for anything literature relate, including information on author's writing styles,
contextual relationships between time periods and works, and criticism.
GREAT resource for reviews and criticism articles, as well as info on authors and--perhaps--directors.

The History databases will be your best bet for movie reviews. Search for your film, and then focus on the "Magazines" and "News" resource lists.  If you discover an article that only includes the citation (and no full text), download it to your Google Drive anyway, and talk to Mrs. Boehne-Miele.  We may have access to the periodical publication through another source.
