Eng 151 / GASP 103S: Shakespeare Resources

Advanced Shakespeare


The resources below will help you find materials to use for your projects for this class. You can also find information in the databases listed by subject below:

Finding Books

Use Melvyl to search for books. You can use keywords the same way you would in a database, e.g., you might try a search for religion AND "romeo and juliet".

You can find many print books related to Shakespeare in the PR 2800-999 call number ranges located on the fourth floor (they have recently moved from the third floor). Call number ranges are listed on the ends of the stacks. Books about Shakespeare will be shelved together, so browsing will help you find more results.


E-books related to Shakespeare will be included with your search results. You can click to open and read e-books that are available at UC Merced.

Sample E-books

To find e-books, conduct a search in Melvyl.

  • From there, select "E-book" under Format
  • Select "UC Merced" under Held By Library

This will show you e-books available at UC Merced.
