Library Research Guides

ESL 325 - Professor Roberts-Eccles (Fall 2023): Welcome!

What Should I Do on This Page?

Hello Class!  My name is Marianne Harris, and I designed this guide to help you get familiar with some of the library resources that are available to you.

To start, I recommend you watch the Welcome Video where you'll learn a bit about me as one of the librarians you can connect with for additional support and help.  

Next, if you are new to the research process or if you'd like to brush up on your research skills, I recommend you complete the following tutorials:

These tutorials were designed by Los Rios librarians for Los Rios students, so you'll be able to apply what you learn to all of the resources in our libraries.

If you have any specific questions the resources found in this guide, or if have any suggestions for additions or improvements, please let me know directly.  You can email me at: 

Happy Searching!
