Great resource for HSC literature students

98% of the texts being studied for the 2009–2012 HSC are in Literary Reference Centre, an online database that you can access from anywhere with your Mosman Library card.

This is a great source of information on all aspects of literature.

  • You can find plot summaries, literary criticism, reviews, journal articles and biographical information on authors and their works.
  • The Literary Glossary and Dictionary help you define terms.
  • The Literary-Historical Timeline can be used to pinpoint movements in literature and when works were written.
  • The Full Text Classics section reproduces works – like Antigone, Jane Eyre, Northanger Abbey and all of Shakespeare’s works – in full text.
  • The Literary context in Novels / Poetry / Short Stories / Plays / Essays / Memoirs gives you the societal, religious, historical, scientific and technological, biographical contexts of a work.

Log-in here and enter your Mosman Library card number.
