For all you science fiction lovers out there, the library has just released a new research guide for your browsing pleasure. While the Sci Fi Research Guide was originally written for students taking Pearl Ratunil’s English 102 and Literature 115 courses, anyone– even the general public– can take a look at any of the research guides and the various resources that are available to them at Harper. There’s info on finding books, media, author biographies, websites, and even MLA citation help if you so need it.
If you find something that peaks your interest and need help finding it, stop by the Reference Desk– we’re here to help.
If you haven’t checked out the library’s research guides, I’d highly recommend doing so. They give handy tips on how to find books, articles, and other resources at the library on a variety of topics. We even have research guides tailored to particular classes.
There’s a new (as in hot off the presses) research guide on the ever popular Engl 102: The Beat Generation taught by Kurt Hemmer. Even if you’re not taking the class, take a look at the research guide to check out the books, articles, and media we have on authors such as Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and others.
And if you’re interested, you can browse through the more than fifty other guides on topics ranging from chemistry to Martin Luther King, Jr. to psychology and more.
