ENGL 100 - Expository Writing (Manhattan)

Library Research Guide


Welcome to the ENGL 100: Expository Writing Research Guide! This guide is meant to help you learn how to use the plethora of K-State Libraries' resources. If this guide does not have the information or guidance you are looking for, do not hesitate to Ask a Librarian for help at any time during the Librarians' service hours.

It's Time to Get Started!

As you begin to think about your Informative Report assignment, consider how you find and evaluate your supporting materials. This research guide walks you through the basics of the research process, and how to find library resources to support your assignment.

Don't wait until the last minute. Give yourself time to search on your own, ask a librarian for guidance and go back to your instructor if you need help. 

If you are searching and can't find the data you need, it is possible it doesn't exist. Be flexible. You might need to tweak your topic based on the resources that are available. 

Consult your Textbook

Consulting your textbook for information about your assignment is always a good idea!
