Research Help During Library Closure

Although the libraries are currently closed due to the COVID-19 emergency, I am still available to help you with your research needs and other library questions. Please see my contact information in the box on this page. I can help you via email, or connect with myself or one of my colleagues via Chat.


Welcome to the research guide for English at Brown University. This guide will help you to get started in your research but you are always welcome to contact me, whether it's to set up a research consultation appointment or just to answer a quick question.

Are you new to humanities research? Take a look at our Research DIY Guide, which includes sections on general research as well as broad discipline fields (Humanities,Social Sciences,etc). This guide will help you through the process from beginning your search to writing your paper.
