New Materials

The Library has gotten a slew of new books. Check these out and we hope that one piques your interest.

Mastering APA Style: Student’s Workbook and Training Guide. American Psychological Association, Washington D.C. This is a workbook for APA style and it is especially directed towards students. This book facilitates “learning instead of memorization by including hands-on learning tools” such as exercises and test. This user-friendly workbook is written to allow you to work at your own pace. A great resource for those who wish to have a better understanding of APA style.

Dynamic Dallas: An Illustrated History. Heritage Media Corp. Carlsbad, CA. This book is an illustrated history of Dallas. This volume seeks to give another view of Dallas by presenting often forgotten history to combat the many stereotypes that abound (somewhere in the world the television show Dallas is in syndication).

The Communication Coach: Business Communication Tips from the Pros. Jeffrey Tobe, Monroeville, PA. Communication is very important in business but how do we communicate effectively in a climate of information overload? In this book business leaders give advice about different aspects of business communication.

The Criminal Justice Student Writer’s Manual Prentice Hall, Inc. Upper Saddle River, NJ. This writer’s manual is designed to help the student with two things: 1) improve writing ability, and 2) begin working to improve research skills in the criminal justice field. This text is primarily written for the beginning student but also has areas for experienced criminal justice students. A historical orientation goes along with a overview of the criminal justice system. This is a great reference source not only for students but for instructor’s who need guidance in the types papers to assign their students.

The Criminal Justice Student Writer’s Manual 2nd ed. Prentice Hall, Inc. Upper Saddle River, NJ. This updated edition features the same goals as the previous version which is teaching criminal justice students to write clearly. This edition does not include an historical overiew.
