Book Studies: How to

Beginning in 2009-2010, Colorado College offers a thematic minor in The Book (the past, present, and future of the written word in its material form).

How to

How to find out-of-print books for sale and see examples of physical book description:, an amalgamation of online databases, or, one particular database of dealers' catalogs.

How to access library databases from off-campus: go via the Tutt Library website. If you use the library's links, you'll get a prompt in the databases to log in with your name and TIGER number.

How to cite sources (Owl at Purdue -- click "Citation Style Chart")
