Resources for ESL students and faculty


This guide has been created for MCC students who are learning English. It is designed to make library research easier and more understandable for beginning and intermediate students. This guide is intended to help you to become familiar with various types of information resources: print books, e-books, films, and websites. This guide is still under construction and I welcome your input. If you have some favorite sources or websites you would like to see here, please let me know. My contact information is in the frame at the right of this screen.
