ENGWR 300 - Professor Bronstein (Summer 2024): Welcome!


Hello Class! My name is Karen McCoy, and I am your friendly neighborhood librarian!

I and all the other ARC librarians are here to help you with your research. We want you to ask us questions! So, if any questions pop up with this, or any other research assignment you're working on, please ask us. We're happy to help! Find out all the ways you can contact an ARC Librarian on this page.

Last but not least, if you are new to the research process, or if you'd like to brush up on your research skills, I recommend going through the What is Research Tutorial and the Getting Started with Research TutorialNOTE:  To login from off-campus, you will need your eServices username (w+student ID) and password. 

Happy Searching!
