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 WSU Libraries, as well as high quality internet resources. Please send me your recommendations for additional resources.

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.
