Welcome to the Guide to research resources for English!
I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in English language and literature. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress. Please feel free to send me recommendations, although the purpose is to keep the guide a manageable size. This is a selective guide, not a comprehensive one.
I am available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to English and literary studies. You may also contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest items for purchase.
