This guide is designed to help you find information about the life and work of Professor Rachel Hadas, a poet and professor of English here at Rutgers- Newark. Professor Hadas has published her own poetry and prose as well as criticism of the writing of others. She has taught literature and writing to many students on our campus and worked with AIDS patients as a writing instructor.
I hope you enjoy hearing from her as much as I have over the past few years. She is a constant reminder to me that writing is both special and a part of everyday life.

Guide Mission Statement
In the transition from high school/general reading and writing to scholarly/academic reading and writing, undergraduate students require a basic knowledge of scholarly sources for secondary research. The library guides for English 102 provide you with an introduction to the resources of the Rutgers University Libraries as well as to methods of searching, evaluation of information sources, and MLA citation style. For many undergraduates this is the only formal introduction to scholarly research you will receive at Rutgers-Newark, and you can use what you learn here in many of your other classes as well.
This guide will help you to:
Locate resources in the Rutgers University Libraries system.
Evaluate information resources.
Obtain books in the Rutgers system.
Obtain scholarly articles and other credible sources
Prepare a quick bibliography in MLA style.
