2. Online Print Library

The next component of your professional web presence is the "Professional Print Library". You've already compiled a list of useful websites for your "Professional Online Library" so now you'll focus on a print library. Have you read any professional books that have helped in your teaching practice? Tell us about them. Your Professional Print Library page on your website should have a set of 5 or more resources that you use in teaching/professional settings. Listed in APA format (some people add pictures or links to Amazon). This list may include PDF files but should not be all PDF files.

Here are several samples:
