About the English language and literature guide

This online guide to research at Bonnie Bell Wardman Library is intended to assist English language and literature students as they formulate, develop, and complete research projects within the Whittier College English curriculum.

Learning is a collaborative process, and beginning researchers will find this maxim true of the research process, too. Keeping this idea in mind, we expect this English language and literature guide to be an ever-changing, dynamic site that will expand and change as students and instructors contribute commentary, assistance, and suggestions for including additional resources. We encourage the research community to help improve the guide in this manner via the spaces allotted for commentary on individual pages, and/or by emailing the subject librarian (link at right).

Thank you for visiting!
