MLA Bibliography is the best source for CITATIONS to articles on literature. It is not primarily a full-text database. For works related to Kennedy's play:
- Choose the "Advanced Search"
- Type in "Kennedy Adrienne" and in "Select a Field" choose "SU Subjects (all)"
- Type in "funnyhouse" in the text box below, and click Search
This should bring up 27 hits. SOME have linked full text; to find others in electronic versions, or hard copy, as available, click the FIND IT! button and follow the menus presented. These menus may lead you to other linked full text, to print journals and anthologies at Brown University Library, or, if the journal/anthology is not at Brown, to local holdings, or, finally, to an inter-library loan request. The menus are intended to get you to the article the easiest and quickest way possible.
To find other works on plays and drama:
Type in your search as appropriate and (scroll down) in the "Genre" box, choose "Drama". This will eliminate works relating to other genres.
If you get too many hits, revise your search to put on other relevant limits, such as "Period" (1900-1999 for example).
Specifying a range of "Publication Dates"(this will mean publication date of the ARTICLE, not the original work you are researching) is also a useful way to zero in on sources of interest.
As detailed above, some citations will have linked full text; for others, use the FIND IT! button.

The "Search Articles" choice offers many options, including selecting from pre-defined list of authors, broad and narrow subjects, document types and special features.
