This page provides tips for choosing the best resources to assist with your English research. NOTE: ESL is a separate guide.
RTC Learning Resource Center Writing Support:
Bring your project, including any instructions or rubrics, & flash drive to Building C room 105 (in the library building) at the following times:
Monday - Thursday – 11:00 AM- 6 PM
The tutors will work one-on-one with students from all programs, backgrounds, and skill levels on course and career-related projects. They will discuss writing strategies, help you identify the strengths and weaknesses of your writing and show you how to become your own independent editor to proofread and correct errors.
Assignment Research - Deciding What You Need
Are you researching literary works, authors or literary criticism? Try the RTC database ProQuest Learning: Literature.
1. Does your assignment require books? Journal articles? Web sites?
2. If no formats are specified, think about the age of the material you need.
If you are reseaching something new, try journal and newspaper articles (found in ProQuest.)
