Reference Help: Help for Specific Classes

Share resources that you have found to be particularly helpful when answering reference questions

Todd Sukany's English Comp II Classes

Todd Sukany does not require literary criticism like the rest of the Language & Literature faculty for his poetry and novel assignments.  So, if students are still struggling with a literary concept and need some additional definitions, feel free to refer them to Perrine's Literature Structure, Sound & Sense or Handbook to Literature.  Students are not to cite this information in their papers.  They are just supposed to refer to it as a point of reference.

What you need to do is ask them what they are researching (like we always do), and then ask them to share with you the scholarly article that they have located in Sukany's class.  Help them consider books in the article bibliography that they think might be relevant.  Then, help them conduct an interlibrary loan for items that we don't have.  If they are on a time crunch, just talk with them about finding something that is similar to the book that they've located in the article bibliography!

Thanks so much for your help with this!!!  Bethany

English Composition I

Besides the articles they find in databases, one of the greatest assets to students in this class is going to be book resources (print and eBook).
