Resources for Composition I and Composition II courses

Searching for Composition Assignments

Looking for sources in a composition class is a bit different than trying to find sources in a more specific class like psychology.

Your topic could be in a broad range of areas! Use the "Find Your Sources" tab to decide where to look.

If you have a broad or very popular topic, the larger search tools may be your best bet.

If you need a newspaper article, navigate to the news tab. In some cases, you may want to pick a scholarly source. 

If you can't find what you need, try a new database! Otherwise, consider asking a librarian or your instructor for help.
