ENGL 101/111 Research Guide


This guide has been created to complement your library instruction session for English 101/111.  The information that is covered in class will be provided here, along with additional information that may assist you with your English 101/111 assignments.

This guide covers topics that are discussed during your English 101/111 library instruction session.

Some of the topics covered in this guide are:

  • the research process
  • using OneSearch to find books, e-books, and articles
  • how items are organized in the library
  • evaluating web resources
  • how to cite properly/avoid plagiarism

This last tab of this guide contains handouts in case you want to print out some of the information covered during class. We encourage you to continue reviewing this guide even after you leave English 101/111, as it contains information you will need during your entire career at FSU.
