ENGA02 - Library Research Guide

Use this guide to find sources for your course assignment

Welcome to UTSC Library!

This research guide will introduce you to resources you will need to complete a major assignment in ENGA02 - Critical Writing about Literature. It will help you find the most pertinent resources available in the U of T libraries, and also show you how to properly cite resources you find. 

These resources will help you to learn about:

  • what scholars have said about the authors and texts you are studying
  • the theme or idea you are using to compare two works in your assignments

You can use this information and ideas to support your arguments (properly cited of course!) in your major paper.
