The Marquette Library has worked with the ESL Program and the writing center to create an "ESL Research Guide" to help students locate physical and online English language learning resources available in the library. More items are being added all the time. We will also be holding a special library orientation at the beginning of each semester to familiarize students with the library self-help resources.
