Welcome to the research and resource page for your first year writing seminar!  Use the tabs above to navigate to library and web resources that should be useful for your assignments in this class.  These are great places to start but are by no means exhaustive.  When you need to talk to someone about your research, you have several options.  You can email me, make an appointment for a Zoom meeting or in-office meeting.  Don't forget the Library's Chat feature.  I look forward to working with you! ~ Laura
