This guide was put together with the goal of helping students in Instructor Diana Li's Spring 2019 English Composition course get started with finding a few sources for their research paper assignment.  It is intended to complement and supplement the April 15, 2019 library research instruction session.

By no means is this an exhaustive guide to doing research, so if you have any questions, please Ask-A-Librarian!  And if you would like to get in touch with Bonnie Fong, her contact information is along the right column.
