Finding articles: Articles are either available on the Web OR they have been placed on E-Reserves. Articles on E-Reserves are accessible at http://amelia.ua.edu by clicking "Course Reserves." Lookup article by title under the instructor pulldown menu ==> MacCall. (If you have a question, go to http://www.lib.ua.edu/reserves/findingereserve.htm additional instructions from the University Libraries web site.)

IMPORTANT: To find an article using the E-Reserves service, you must know its title. (Note: Titles in E-Reserves are case sensitive. Unfortunately, this means that the list is not really in alphabetical order, because titles were entered into the system in both upper and lower case by the E-Reserves workers).

To assist you in locating E-Reserves articles, I have provided the first words of each article's title in the Course Calendar below. Full bibliographic information for the readings is available in the course bibliography.
