I'm drafting a piece which I plan to be working on for (and at)
the Inkshed conference in Ottawa at the end of the month. It's
about why students don't understand citation, documentation and
acknowledgement. I want to begin with a quick survey of a couple
of standard handbooks about such matters for writing classes.
When I was peremptorily retired a year ago and lost my office, I
disposed of the vast treasure trove of free samples of handbooks
from publishers that I'd accumulated over the decades, so I'm
not in a position to just thumb through some samples. I would
very much appreciate some feedback from folks on the list: what
are, in your view, the one or two most generally used or widely
accepted current handbooks used in Canadian writing courses?
Write me off list if you think it'll clutter up CASLL-L.
While I'm waiting for responses, I'm off to read Doug Brent's
piece in the current Inkshed Newsletter. Thanks for posting it,
Saint Thomas University
