Start Here: How-to Conduct Academic Research for English 1320 Assignments

Your University Libraries are:

  1. Support for your coursework (like high school libraries), but they also support research, yours and your professor's. 
  2. Academic libraries like Alkek Library are open later and on weekends. Why? To help you focus on your academic work, rest and recharge, and collaborate with your classmates and friends.
    • Pro Tip: Check the Library website for the most up-to-date hours, i.e., emergency closures and similar.  
  3. Connect you with technology like Computer labs, Printing, Equipment for Check-Out, Workshops, and events to help you learn new technology and tech support---ITAC (IT Assistance Center).
  4. Do the hard work of finding quality academic information for you. Avoid stress finding the good stuff;  scholarly journals, patents, scientific data; the Library's got it! Both in print and online.
  5. Can help in person by visiting the Ask Us Desk on Alkek Library's second-floor lobby and online via online chat, email, text, or by appointment
