Course Textbook
The required textbook for the class is The College Student's Research Companion: Finding, Evaluating and Citing the Resources You Need to Succeed by Arlene Quartiello. ISBN: 9781555707293. This is the 5th edition of this book. Past editions are very different and won't work for this class. You can buy this at the CSM bookstore. There are also three copies of the textbook available through College Reserves at the CSM Library. Check whether the textbooks on reserve are currently available by using the CSM Library catalog.

Library Card
You will need a Peninsula System library card. If you have one already, make sure it's still active - they do expire, but all you need to do is visit any PLS library and update your information that they will renew your card. If you don't have a PLS library card, you can obtain one from any public library in San Mateo County. If you don't live in San Mateo County, you can still get a card that's available to distance education students.

Prior to joining the faculty at CSM, I was a librarian at the University of Colorado Boulder and at the University of Southern California.
