Welcome to the ENGLISH 101/S Research Guide for Fiction


you're not a real fan unless you know Frankenstein is not the monster, but you're a real fan if you know Frankenstein is the monster.
This guide provides ENGLISH 101/E students information and strategies for accessing primary and secondary sources in order to effectively research a work of short or novel length fiction. Ideally, this guide is used as a companion to the in-person ENGLISH 101/E library orientation taught by a library faculty member.

Students come to a writing task with a wide range of library research experience. For some, this is your first research paper at Citrus, this may even be your first college class. For others the research process may be familiar, but our library resources and search strategies may be new to you. Please contact a librarian if you need assistance with your research paper or with using this guide. Here are some tips for Literary Theory and Schools of Criticism (from Purdue's OWL)

ID badgeCOVID-19 Update: Due to campus closure, physical photo ID cards cannot be created. To verify student status, consider using your student email or screenshot of WIngSpan Student Detail Class Summary. 

Your Citrus College ID card is your library card. Library staff issue photo ID cards Monday-Thursday to current students, staff and faculty during stated business hours. All students currently enrolled in at least one credit-unit are eligible to receive a Foothill Transit Class Pass, a reusable electronic TAP sticker that attaches to the ID card and lets Citrus College students ride Foothill Transit for free. The Class Pass can be obtained at the Campus Center.

Photo ID cards are required for checking out library materials. To receive a photo ID students must:

  • visit the Photo ID Office or Check Out Desk in the library
  • provide photo identification (Driver's License, passport, etc),
  • provide your Citrus College WingSpan Number,
  • be currently registered with all fees paid, 

ID cards can be obtained 24 hours after students have registered for courses.

Please remember to always carry your Citrus photo ID with you.
