ENGWR 302 - Professor Blunk (Spring 2024): Welcome!


Hello Class!  My name is Marianne Harris, and I designed this guide to help you with your ENGWR 302 research assignment.  Before we dive any further, if you'd like to learn a little bit about me, feel free to watch the "Meet Marianne the Librarian" video.  

One of the most important pieces of information I'd like you to hold on to is that I, and all of the other librarians at ARC, are available to assist you with any questions you have about any part of the research process required for this class.  You can click on the "Contact a Librarian" box below to call us or email any one of us.  You can also make a Research Appointment with us by clicking on the icon below and following the prompts.  

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 What is Research Tutorial and the Getting Started with Research Tutorial.  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!

Research Appointments


You don't have to make a Research Appointment to get help from a librarian, but there are benefits to making one:

  • Receive one-on-one help from a librarian for 25 minutes.
  • Learn to create a research strategy (select and refine a topic).
  • Get help finding sources for your assignment (scholarly, peer reviewed, books and more!).
  • Get resources for citing your sources (MLA, APA, etc). 

To get started, click on the Research Appointments icon above.
