ENG100 - In the Time of the Butterflies: Literary Context

An OWHL Guide for English 100 Students - In the Time of the Butterflies, by Julia Alvarez

Where to Start

When starting any research, it is important to begin with reference works.  Reference works are broad in scope and will give you an overview of your topic. Reference sources can be in either print or electronic formats, and are usually short articles found in encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, etc.  At the OWHL, our print reference materials are found in the Garver Room.  

Our electronic reference resources are included in many of our paid subscription databases.  A selection of helpful databases for this class may be found below.  To look at the complete list of databases, go to the Quick Links box on the Introduction tab of this OWHL Guide.
