Welcome English 208 students to your online research guide! In case you need a refresher, I've put together a couple of easy steps and links to credible resources to get you on your way!

Use the tabs above to find more information about library resources. Below is the prompt for your essay. If you visit the Research Help Desk, make sure to share your prompt questions and/or the entire attached PDF with the librarian. Happy researching!

How do your two chosen works comment on what it means to be “American” at a particular time in the United States? (For example, what does it mean to be in the U.S. after World War I or during counter-cultural movements?)
