To help you develop your research skills, we've put together a collection of resources that will come in particularly handy in Freshman English, including how to use the catalog to find a book, how to find journal articles, how to cite sources, and how to avoid plagiarism when writing a paper.
WorldCat is the searchable catalog of its member libraries, which include most of the libraries not just in the NYC area but in the U.S., plus many international library catalogs as well. WorldCat makes a good first place to start your research process because its keyword search is more flexible than that of Pratt, plus it will show you what is available at Pratt as the first results for your search term.
