Welcome to Library Resources to support your assignments in TSL4240: Issues in Second Language Acquisition! Everything you need to support your library research for this class is available to you through UCF Libraries. These resources include 325 databases, 24,000 online journals and more than 590,000 online eBooks. Don't worrry, you won't need all of them for this class!
We'll start with becoming familiar with searching the library catlog which does not require a log-in to search. Because use of eBooks and database journal articles is restricted to currently enrolled students, access to these e-resources requires authentication. This is explained a bit further down. So let's get started!
The UCF Libraries homepage is the starting point to find print books, full-text online eBooks, and journal articles. This video "tour" provides a great introduction!

Since this is a fully-online class, you may prefer to use online library resources to access full-text eBooks through the cataglog, and databases for research articles from academic journals. We'll focus on how to locate those under the next tab!
