Now that you've taken the ENGL 1120 Library Tutorial and digested the Research Bytes, here are the tools we recommend frequently for ENGL 1120 assignments. Use Step 3 when you're ready to start your research.
There are four areas that we consistently recommend for students in ENGL 1120: 1) Catalog Search, 2) books, 3) Research Guides, & 4) Databases.
Catalog Search: Good place to start your research, but it can also be overwhelming. Try narrowing results by date or type.
Books: Find physical books and ebooks here
Research Guides: Check out other research guides for more tips about where to look.
Databases: Know which database you want to start with? Listed alphabetically here (e.g. JSTOR, Academic Search Complete). Databases by Subject: Not sure which database to try first? Start here. Remember, your topic might be multidisciplinary.
