Read our faculty research without leaving your sofa


tiger-sofa-by-rodolfoIt used to be that all academic scholarship was published in either book form or print journals, which could not be found outside of university libraries and the offices and studies of interested scholars. Some may remember using indexes and CD-ROMS to locate articles. Now we use online databases to search for relevant research, and increasingly publications in certain fields are online, particularly the sciences and those related to digital fields.  If you are interested in reading some recent scholarship by UWaterloo English faculty published online see:
