A Guide to Mathematics Resources

"Writing Shelf" books, summer 2009

See also Writing Math page.

Because of the relocation of math library materials during summer, 2009, our writing shelf collection has been merged with the general books stacks. New materials will not be added to this list, but this list may help with browsing and identifying appropriate subject headings.
