This ENGL 261 Guide has been developed to make sure you have the information you need to find and evaluate sources.

This guide will:

  • Provide information on finding books, articles and more using OneSearch

  • Demonstrate how to use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request research articles not owned by the library
  • Present criteria to evaluate and analyze websites
