Summary

Bookmarks is a new-generation research guide built on the assumption that students need to appreciate both conventional methods of research and techniques associated with rapidly developing electronic technologies.. "Bookmarks is designed as a bridge between old and new traditions - a guide for the college writers working in both print and electronic environments. It invites them to think of themselves, perhaps for the first time, as serious researchers.
