Research in English

English embraces both reading and writing literature. Reading critically involves analyzing texts in the context of history, literary theory, genres, or social issues and can involve looking into historical, cultural, or thematic connections. English majors also write creatively and may need inspiration or factual information for their work or may want to know more about the publishing business. This guide to resources presents a small sampling of the tools available for the interpretation or creation of literature..Please don't hesitate to ask a librarian for assistance if you aren't finding what you need.
