ENGL 1013 Freshman English II

Welcome to the Freshman English II research guide.

Why use the library?

Why should you use the library?

  • Not everything is on the Internet. 

You can browse and read books, magazines, encyclopedias, and other print materials that are not available online.

  • Not everything is free.

You have access to databases with thousands of magazines and scholarly journals in full text.

  • Librarians (with faculty help) spend time selecting quality library materials.

We collect scholarly, authoritative materials (books, scholarly journals, magazines) especially for your classes.

  • Get personal assistance from SWU librarians.

Just ask us... we are here to help!
