CompPile iprovides ready reference to the published twentieth-century work in post-secondary composition and rhetoric, from 1939 to the present. CompPile integrates journal articles, review-essays, notes and comments, books, dissertations, ERIC items, and edited collections. It does not systematically cover textbooks, how-to books, conference notices, editor's forwards, or reviews of single works.
Unlike many of our subject databases, CompPile is an entirely Open Access resource that has been developed and maintained by professionals in the field of Writing and Rhetoric. For this reason, it doesn't link directly to our connected system of databases. We have created a video tutorial to provide an overview of the CompPile basics and help users get the most out of their searches.
