Welcome!

ENG 101 is a course in expository writing, which is writing that seeks to inform, explain, clarify, define or instruct.

Please use this guide to navigate the library's resources while you work on your writing assignments for ENG 101, as well as for research for other courses you might be taking.

I hope you will find it useful.

Find a topic

Geography, dates, location, gender & age are just a few of the ways you can narrow your research topic. We recommend starting with one of these resources:

  1. CQ Researcher:  Find in-depth background information on controversial and current issues. Browse Recent Reports or By Topic to paper topic ideas. Reports written by CQ staff writers.
  2. CREDO Reference: An excellent source for background information! Credo Reference has 3.2 million entries from more than 450 encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, guides, and atlases in all fields.
  3. Opposing Viewpoints in Context: This Gale portal features a range of perspectives on important issues and related references to bring research on these perspectives to light.
  4. Search in the URSUS catalog for "your topic and Opposing viewpoints" or "your topic and Taking sides". These book series cover the 'pros' and 'cons' of current issues.
