This guide is designed to help you research topics for your English classes. By clicking on the tabs at the top of each page, you can locate reference works and guides (for time-saving background material), appropriate databases (for magazine and journal articles), scholarly websites (that cover various aspects of the field), and maybe class handouts (used in English library classes). Don't forget that you will have to cite and document the sources you use. For that reason, each page has a link to the NDNU Libraries' guide to Citing Resources.
Use the tabbed options to the left to engage in research in English. Always remember that reference librarians are available to assist you as well. Visit the Gellert Library homepage for our hours and contact options.
The English Department provides students with a broad intellectual foundation in literature and culture while strengthening their abilities to express ideas in clear, accurate prose. In addition to studying classics of British and American literature, majors read literature of the world, Western and non-Western, as well as literature written by women and by persons of color. The department offers courses in advanced writing, technical writing and creative writing, including the award-winning campus literary magazine, The Bohemian.
Because the department is relatively small, students interact with professors and with each other on a personal level. Each year the English Department offers a number of creative activities for English majors as well as all NDNU students:
