I recently received the rare good news that our department has a significant budget for library acquisitions this year. The catch is that we need to come up with a list of titles to match the amount before January. I have a partial list, but I worry that in the rush to decide Iíll miss important scholarly studies or textbooks. The last time I went through a similar exercise was in 1999, and we acquired a few important titles. If you can think of books on business or technical communication (oral and written) or writing pedagogy published after 1998 that you think are valuable resources, please send/post your suggestions. Iím sure that multiple perspectives on what texts are worth recommending will be as helpful to me as the titles themselves.
