What do cats have to do with technology (besides the fact that 1/3 of the Internet is made up of adorable kitties doing adorably funny things)? In this case, the little cat feet lead us to our online research database, LitFinder. Another librarian reminded me that LitFinder used to be called Poem Finder. And in fact, you may use it to find full-text poems, in this case “Fog,” by Carl Sandburg:
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
I found the poem by typing in just the bit of it I could remember for certain.
In addition to poems, LitFinder has the full text of short stories, literary criticism and poem explication, and author biographies. It has lots of ways to search, including by era, the type of work (poem, ballad, essay, etc.), and includes about 2,000 works in Spanish.
In addition to LitFinder, we have several other literary databases that would appeal to literature lovers, or those struggling to understand it before their upcoming test or essay (hi students!).
