Research Sources

In addition to books and other material contained in the Library and Learning Center on campus, a considerable amount of information is available for both language study and cultural research on the INTERNET.  Some of the most useful Internet sites are listed below.

If you run across a site in your web surfing that would be of value to other students, copy the URLs address and give it to one of your instructors to be included in our list.

Sites come and go, so if some of these sites do not work, send an e-mail to dhinson@victor.cc.ca.us or mfranco@victor.cc.ca.us
