Find Google Books

Google Books often offers numerous chapters of certain books, and more or less portions of others. It is definitely worth a search when information is needed. Though a book may not be digitized and available in total, it may lead you to know if that limited book is worth a trip to the library or a purchase. Especially important are tables of contents and indexes, if available for viewing.


Open Access Journals


Here are some websites that have valuable information for instructors like you.
