This guide, while created for specific instructors (Little ), based on their assignments, you may also find the information helpful in your research process. This guide will help you to research authors and context of the works assigned and assist you in writing a context based analysis of the work (short story, novel, poem, etc) and its author.
The library has many resources and this guide will help you in finding the ones that will be most useful to you in your Writing 102 research assignments.
The tabs are arranged to guide you through the steps of the research process. They'll lead you to reference tools for basic background information, library books for a more in-depth look at your topic, journal articles, and additional links to help you to write your paper and cite your sources.
