As you learn about sources from reference books, record the authors, titles, and other information (such as names and dates of periodicals) so that you can find the sources in your library. The simplest way to keep track of books is to print information directly from an online catalog entry. But if you can’t make printouts, fill out a three-by-five-inch source card on each book you plan to consult. You’ll also need a source card for each article you plan to see.

Through four successful editions, Writing: A College Handbook’s positive approach has not only empowered students to write effectively, it has challenged students to consider why good writing matters. The Fifth Edition builds on this emphasis, exemplifying in clear, engaging prose the skills that students need to communicate in a wide variety of rhetorical contexts. A reliable and easy-to-use reference tool and an up-to-date rhetoric and research guide, Writing: A College Handbook invites students to discover the power of effective writing.
