Welcome to the English Subject Guide

Here you will find tools and resources to help you engage in research, but don't forget the library has many resources that are all available to you as Villanova students. 

Remember that just because you are in an English class doesn’t mean you should limit yourself to the English Subject guide, depending on your assignment you may want to check out other subject guides to aid in your research.
