About this guide

First, it provides quick access to resources that can be useful to students taking English or Writing and Publishing courses.

Second, it highlights resources available from the library that may be unfamiliar to students.

Student Support

All Saint Joseph's College students may use Smarthinking, which provides access to tutors, and feedback for written assignments. Find a link to Smarthinking under the Student Resources heading on your Brightspace course homepage. 

Quick Access

The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) includes the meaning, history, and pronunciation of 600,000 words.

As an historical dictionary, the OED is very different from dictionaries of current English, in which the focus is on present-day meanings. You will still find present-day meanings in the OED, but you will also find the history of individual words, and of the language.

Gale Literature Database provides access to scholarly articles, biographical information about authors and literary criticism.
