 We will be using academic databases in the PCC library (online).

You will need to submit essays as DOCX, PDF, RTF, or Google Doc. I cannot view Pages.

Office Libre is another option if you do not want to purchase Microsoft Office.

Instructor comments:

 There are no assigned textbooks.

If you have not written a research essay in a long time, you may want to purchase an older edition of Bruce Ballenger's The Curious Researcher.

The last few editions are about the same. The latest (8th edition) is too expensive ($60 or so). Some students like a guide. Some do not. Plan accordingly.
