Books

The Helmke Library Catalog is the first place to look for books.  You can use Purdue Borrow to access collections at other Pufdue campuses using the catalog as well. If you do not find what you need via our catalog, try FristSearch for a more expansive worldwide collection of books that you can order via Document Delivery.

Style Guides

Recommended style guides for this course are the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers and the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing, both published by the Modern Language Association.  The most recent printed editions of these guides are located at the Service Desk in the Library and may be checked out for two hours for in-library use only. Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL) has created helpful online guides to MLA style:

When a Resource is Not Available in the Library

Many of the above databases  allow you immediate access to electronic copies of journal articles via PDF links or through the FIND IT link to the full text.  You may also request items needed for your research that are not available at Helmke Library through Document Delivery Services (DDS). DDS provides books and electronic copies of journal and other periodical articles from other library collections.
