ENGL 2367

Research guide for students of second-year writing


Welcome to the online research guide for students enrolled in English 2367!  This guide will help you as you conceive, compose, and complete your research-based assignments, whether you’re just learning to navigate the University Libraries’ resources, need to find and evaluate sources, or want assistance in using and integrating those sources effectively into your writing.  Each page (which you can access using the menu to the left) includes tips and tutorials, selected reference materials, embedded search boxes, and other tools tailored to assist you as you conduct your research in English 2367.  
If you would also like to meet with a staff person during your class to discuss or get feedback on your research practices, visit Tanya Bomsta—the University Libraries Research Tutor—during her research tutoring hours listed on the right or contact the Reference Services team using the Contact the Libraries! box below.
Students and instructors are also encouraged to access the free e-book created by the OSU Libraries, Choosing and Using Sources: A Guide to Academic Research, available online at
