The English Department maintains a Seminar Room library and research center on the first floor of Pedreira (Ped 108). The Seminar Room provides research material in English on Literature and Linguistics to graduate English majors and serves as a reference center for graduate students and professors of the English Department. A particular emphasis of the collection is the English-speaking Caribbean. (download our brochure for future reference and watch our Seminar Room video below for an overall impression of the collection and events).
In order to facilitate the research experience, the Seminar Room has three Internet-enabled computers available to users, as well as a wireless access point which permits wi-fi access to the UPR network via UPR student or employee accounts.
In addition to its library functions, the Seminar Room hosts talks by eminent scholars from a variety of countries, as well as local experts, on topics of relevance to the Graduate Program. Any such talks are advertised on bulletin boards, via email, on the Richardson Seminar Room and English Department Facebook pages, and on the News page of this web site.
