Welcome to the Library Guide for English Language Learning!

Welcome to the guide for English Language Learning!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in English Language Studies. 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, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty involved in English Language Studies.

I hope that using the tabs along the top of this guide will help you find what you need.  If you need assistance, you can contact me through the box on the right, or below.  Other librarians are also available through the Ask-A-Librarian Service (on the left).  I am also available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to English Language Learning.   I look forward to meeting you and helping with your information needs.
