About English Composition

WSU librarians have offered instructional sessions for the English Composition Program each term since the beginning of the Library Instruction Team in 1995. Currently all Engl 101 sections each term are mandated to partcipate in library instruction as part of an increased effort to meet the evolving information literacy needs of early undergraduates. The instruction sessions focus on how to use WSU's online catalog and article indexes (especially those that provide literary reviews/critiques and scholarly information about contemporary issues). In addition, all classes include instruction tailored to the specific research assignments of the particular English Composition course/section.

If you are an English Composition instructor seeking to schedule a library instruction session, please go to the scheduling form.

In addition to live instructional offerings, composition instructors are encouraged to assign the Online Tour for Undergraduates. The Online Tour provides a brief introduction to library services and an opportunity for students to become familiar with the Libraries' online resources. The online tour includes a quiz which instructors can assign through their Angel spaces.
