ENG 313 Books on Hold in the Special Collections Research Center

One of the books used for your transmission essay should be from the Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) 

Several editions of each of the stories for this assignment are on hold in the SCRC Reading Room on the 6th floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library South. See this spreadsheet for a complete list of books on hold.

SCRC is open Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10:00AM - Noon and 1:00PM - 5:00 PM.

You do not need an appointment to see the books on hold for this class. Simply let the reading room staff know that you are here to see books on hold for Dr. Lisa Makman's ENG 313 class and tell them which book you wish to see. There will also be a physical copy of the spreadsheet available in the reading room for reference.
