The BC Libraries offer many excellent resources (in print and online) to help you conduct research in German Studies.  Of course, the extent to which you’ll need to mine these riches depends upon the scope of your research project.

If you are new to German Studies research, or if the topic you are charged with investigating is largely unfamiliar to you, you might benefit from reading a concise – yet academically trustworthy – overview of your topic to launch your study.  Two good references – the Cambridge History of German Literature and The Cambridge Companion to Modern German Culture - can meet this need and point you to further resources.

On the BC Libraries’ website, an excellent starting point is the German Studies Portal, which provides links to key resources, including the MLA International Bibliography; a German Studies research guide; and, some of the most relevant databases for German Studies research. Contact the German Language & Literature Librarian for more assistance.
