Composition I (ENGL 1113): How to Find Course Readings by Title

This research guide will help you complete your Comp. I assignments quickly and easily.

Finding assigned articles using the library's Discovery Search

It is common for professors teaching Comp 1 courses to use articles and other short writings to not only provide examples of how to write, but also to give students something to think and write about.  Often, students will be provided with reading list that includes titles (and sometimes authors) of articles and essays that are available free on the Internet or through library databases.  Being able to find articles on your own is a very valuable skill for research in general, so this page focuses on showing you how to locate the articles through the library's databases.  The first video on this page will show you how to do this, and the second one will provide some strategies you can use to troubleshoot if the process doesn't work as expected and what steps you can take if you need more help.
