Short Stories - Where to find them?
One librarian suggests:
If your library has a subscription to JSTOR or another magazine database that goes back in time, even EBSCO Academic Search, the New Yorker, Sewanee Review, and other literary magazines publish short stories and poems that are in fulltext. A few might even have a few serialized novels. I was able to find Flannery O’Connor short stories, for instance. They may not be OER but they would be free to access.
