Library Access & Services during COVID-19


Welcome to the Research Guide for Classical & Modern Languages, Literatures, & Cultures

This Guide supports the Classical & Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures courses and department. 

As a collaborative work-in-progress, this Guide is developed with the suggestions and feedback from students, faculty, and staff in CMLLC and related areas. 

Please contact me by email or by telephone if you have a question about library services or you need some help finding resources. I am also available online by appointment to assist with research.  Faculty are especially encouraged to contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest resources.
