Spring 2012 – LIS 626 Syllabus

January 13, 2012 at 5:43 pm | Posted in PRATT SILS 626 | Leave a comment

Here is the syllabus for our 626 Class. Please order the text we will be using this semester: Armstrong and Knott.

Any broken links you note in the syllabus should be brought to my attention so I can post the necessary documents.

Remember that this is a master class and that our work needs to be that much more rigorous than in 617.

Happy new year and see you ready to go next Wednesday!
