Welcome

Welcome to the research and resource page for your first year writing seminar! Using the tabs above will lead you to many library and web resources that will 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 a live person about your research, you have several options this Spring. You may email me, make an appointment for a Zoom meeting, or use the Library's Chat feature to get a quick answer to a question. I look forward to working with you!
