Welcome to the LibGuide specifically created for students in ENG 120 - Introduction to English Studies. In this guide you will find resources, recommendations and information useful for research in the liberal arts, specifically the study of books, authors and the written word. Scroll through the tabs at the top for different aspects and sources for your research.
From the library discovery catalog above, perform a search and click the Place Hold button for physical items within other PALNI libraries. All that is required is to sign in with your MU credentials. Once an item is delivered and ready for pick-up, an automatic confirmation email will be sent. Try it out with our self-paced guide.
Doesn't this sound like Interlibrary Loan? Yes, it is similar but this service, called PALShare, is another way to get items delivered slightly faster than ILL. Here's a chart breaking down the difference between the two services.
Looking for Databases? Search our list of discipline specific databases for content within your academic area.
If you're looking for specific e-journals, try our A-Z list as well as that available on our Browzine platform. You'll be able to find what titles we have, which databases they're located within, and the date-specific coverage of those titles.
To see due dates, renew, or check fines of what items one has on their library account, click the My Library Account link at the top right of the catalog and add your Marian University login credentials.
