ESL: Research Help

Welcome to the English Language Learners Research Guide!

This guide is to help you get a jumpstart on your ELL studies by giving an overview of what ELL Resources are available in the library, along with some quick tips on how to find and use them.



Sherratt Library provides access to a number of databases on a wide range of subjects. Below is a list of databases with content that is at a reading level accessible for ELL Students:

Journals and Periodicals

Although many of the journals we have in Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, there are times when a print copy is the way to go. Below is a list of journals we have in print and electronic formats. (Note: Print copies of journals are housed on the first floor of Sherratt Library, organized alphabetically by title.)

Books and Ebooks

Here at Sherratt Library, we use the Library of Congress classification system (call numbers) to organize most of our items, including print books and e-books. Below is a general list of call numbers that relate to learning the English language (they can help you find items faster).
