Assignments can be updated at needs/speed of the class; you will be notified of updates by e-mail, and are responsible for checking the page after notification.
Course Reserve Materials: For reasons of time, convenience, and expense -- especially expense -- I have placed additional course readings on one-hour course reserve in the Blackwell Library. Accessing library reserve materials for this class is easy: Do not wait until the last minute to check out and photocopy these items. If the necessary items are all checked out, go to the photocopiers and ask the other students there whether any of them are photocopying materials for my class.
