English Language Center: ELCA 12 and 22: Finding Sources

This guide has been created to assist students enrolled in ELCA 12 & 22.

Research and Instruction Services

RIT Libraries offers individual liaison librarians who specialize in content for each college at RIT. They are here to help students conduct research in both undergraduate and graduate work. 


A database is a collection of materials that deal with a certain topic or area of study. Some tend to be very specific, while others cross disciplines. 

The database finder is organized by collections of databases for each college at RIT. 

General Databases


A journal is an academic periodical publication. This means that a collection of materials is published together at regularly occurring intervals. 

Browse with Summon

Summon is a great discovery tool for those who have not yet narrowed down their topic or key words. It will show the user all materials that are available to them through RIT. 

Interlibrary Loan

If you are unable to find what you are looking for in our collection, materials can be requested through IDS. 

Practice on your own!
