Revision as of 22:26, 15 July 2009

This page consists of books we'd like to get to stock the library. It is divided into 3 sections. The first is books going on this term's MEF proposal, this should be done by whoever is writing the proposal. The second is a list of actual books with ISBN. The third is vague ideas of what kind of books we need. The goal is for this page to be emptied by way of moving things from section three up to section one and then off.

MEF Proposal

MEF Proposal books should include a quote and a sentence or two of justification.

Actual Books

Actual books should have a precise title and ISBN for edition desired.
