Texas State Intensive English (TSIE): Home

This research guide contains resources to support the Texas State Intensive English (TSIE) program.


As a Texas State student you have access to Alkek Library materials and resources that can help you with your academic work, as well as studying for the TOEFL and IELTS exam.  Library staff are available to help you with any questions you might have!  This guide can serve as a resource of library services you might be able to apply at various points in your studies.

The TSIE website is your first stop for admission to the program as well and support throughout your studies at Texas State.


You'll find information about how to find books, search for articles, and about the many services Alkek has to offer you.  Alkek Librarians are available to help you via Ask-A-Librarian.

The Research Process

Researching is messy and you'll feel like you are going in circles sometimes, which is okay!  There are a lot of steps to go through before you start writing your paper.  This visualization can help you navigate your way through the process.
