This guide is for students enrolled in English/ Linguistics 200 at Cañada College. The guide was created to help you develop your research term paper. Here, you'll find information about our collection of English/Linguistics-related materials, a guide to the databases most commonly used by students studying linguistics, the reference books you'll find most useful, as well as information on citing your sources.

If you get stuck or have any questions please visit the reference desk or contact the Cañada Library Librarians at  650-306-3480. We are here to help you!

Library services

The Cañada College Library, on the third floor of Building 9, offers computers, textbooks, technology, research help, printing, and group study rooms.

Library computers do not require you to log in and do not have a time limit so you can come and stay all day. Chromebooks, hotspots and calculators can be checked out from the circulation desk after you complete a technology loan agreement.

Search for textbooks available at the library. If you do not see your textbook, fill out the Textbook request form for students.
