Welcome to the library course guide page for Italian 497H: Boccaccio's Decameron.

This guide is intended to help you in your class work. This course is multi-disciplinary, and encompasses many different academic disciplines.


In the database pages, I have suggested general, historical, and literature-specific databases which may have articles relating to your research. It is not, of course,  exhaustive. 



If you'd like an individual research consultation on your paper topic, please contact me and we'll set up a time to meet.
