During the Fall 2020 term on Wednesdays between noon to 2 pm I will have a virtual office open for English Department students and faculty.

Research Process


Pick out the main ideas from your topic and generate some keywords.


Try your keywords in the databases on the Articles page, or search the main library search to find books, ebooks, videos and more.


Look at what you find and determine if it’s a quality source. Does it work for your assignment, or do you need to go back and find more?

For more information visit our Research Help pages.
