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 home: when you click on our database links from off campus, you will be asked to log in with your name and TIGER number. Once you log in, you will be able to access the database as a Colorado College user, just as if you were on campus.

How to cite sources

Got lots of citations to keep track of? Try Refworks (you'll need to create a username and password, but it's free).
