ENGL 3743 -- Professional and Technical Writing: Books

MaagNet Books

Check Maag Library first for books, government documents, e-books (electronic books) and other materials. Search by subject, keyword, author, or title.  Once an item has been selected, copy or print the publication information (author, title, publisher, date) found on the title page of the book or from the catalog record so the item can be properly cited later. For assistance in creating Works Cited or Bibliographic References pages see Citing Resources.  Finally, note the item’s Call Number and Location, then check the Building Guide.

Finding Books in OhioLink

Search OhioLINK for books not available at Maag Library but owned by other Ohio colleges and universities consortia members.  An item may be requested from other OhioLINK institutions, if its status indicates it is Available. Follow the OhioLINK Borrowing Service procedure to request them.  For search help, see About the OhioLINK Central Catalog

Finding Electronic Books

In addition to print items, some full-text, scholarly, scientific monographs may be found in the Electronic Book Center (EBC). Use keyword search terms for a specific subject area. Three other collections of electronic resources available through the EBC are Safari Books (computer applications), Wiley Online Books (scientific, technical, and medical books), and the EBSCO E-Book Collections.
