ENGL 1102 (Frank)

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!
