ESL - English as a Second Language Research Guide

Introduction to library research and links into information resources related to ESL.


Books typically provide extensive coverage on one topic or theme. Subject-specific reference books can provide you with background information as well as the historical context of your topic.

  • Circulating Books may be checked out for use outside the library.
  • Electronic Books (ebooks) are always available and may be viewed on any computer with an internet connection, on or off campus.
  • Reference Books are available for use in the library, but not for checkout.

Write down the call number of the print books in your search results to help you locate the books on the shelf, and to give you an idea of where to browse for similar titles.
