How to use this guide
Hello, and welcome! This guide has been created specifically to help you complete assignments for your ENGL 1102 course with Kelley Frank. For Essay #2, you have to use at least one source from a peer-reviewed (AKA: Scholarly, academic, refereed--different terms for the same thing!) journal or one academic essay from a book to help you analyze Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House. The resources in this guide will help you:
- better understand what a scholarly/academic article is
- come up with search terms that will help you find the information you need
- learn how to search the library catalog for books
- learn how to search library databases (Academic Search Complete, to be specific) to find articles
If you get stuck, do not hesitate to get in touch with a librarian for help on finding and thinking critically about how to use a resource. My contact information is to the right--feel free to email me with quicker questions, or to set up an appointment if you need some more in-depth help.
You can also take advantage of our librarian office hours--Monday-Thursday between 11-5, you can meet one-on-one with a librarian without an appointment! Just ask someone at the check-out desk or a student reference assistant and they'll send a librarian your way!
