Answer

You may want to start with the libguide ENG W132 Elementary Composition - Fairy Tales and Legends.  Go to the ‘Articles’ tab and select a database, such as ProQuest Central.

 

From the search screen, type ‘little mermaid or ‘little mermaid and andersen’ into the search blank and put checkmarks next to the boxes that say ‘peer reviewed’ and ‘full text’. 

 

You’ll get back articles with titles like “The Little Mermaid: Icon and Disneyfication”, “The Work of Hans Christian Andersen: More Than Just Fairy Tales”, “Disney's Sub/version of Andersen's The Little Mermaid”, and “A Liberating Imagination: Andersen in England”.

 

If you don’t find an article you like there, try other databases from the list like Academic Search Premier or JSTOR  – both of those are also large collections of full text articles.

 

Let me know if I can be of help in your search.

 

Cordially,

    Problem Accessing Fulltext in the ERIC Database

     

    From their website:

     

    Dear ERIC Community,

    In early August we discovered that sensitive personally identifiable information appeared in some full text documents contained in the ERIC collection. Specifically, social security numbers and other highly sensitive information were found in multiple documents and in a way that could not easily be isolated. For that reason, we had to temporarily disable access to many full text documents.

    Although these documents had been publicly available in microfiche for many years, the advent of Internet search engines has made it easier to find this information. Our number one concern is to ensure that any full-text documents we provide do not violate any individual's privacy. We believe that if any of us were to have our privacy compromised by an ERIC document, we would want the same consideration.

    We are seeking to restore access to documents as soon as possible. In order to restore access to ERIC, we have to check every document to see if it contains personally identifiable information. Due to the quality of many of the documents, a large portion of the search has to be done by hand. This is a large undertaking and we are in the process of hiring a team to help restore access in a fast and responsive manner. We hope to get this team in place by late September and releasing large numbers of ERIC documents by the end of October. We will continue to release documents after that point on a rolling basis.

    To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the documents that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email ERICRequests@ed.gov with the record number (such as ED263102). Documents will be returned on a rolling basis and may take several weeks, but we are working as fast as possible.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience and want to thank you for bearing with us through this unexpected delay.
