    Are there any literature?

    Is the word "literature" a plural form when it means "books or other printed information about a subject" or "academic books and atrticles published about a particular subject"? Can I say "Are there any literature on the subject"? Thank you very much!

    No, it's treated as singular, like "information, advice."
    Is there any literature on the subject?
