Course Website

Course Textbook
The recommended textbook for the class is Research Strategies: Finding Your Way Through the Information Fog by William Badke. ISBN: 9781491722336. This title is available in print and as an ebook (Kindle format). You can buy the print version at CSM bookstore. The CSM Libary has several copies and couple of them will be available as Reserves (for use in the Library only)

Library Card
You also need a Peninsula System library card (choose your library from the list and fill an online application). 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.
