There will be a collection of online readings which the students can print and put in a 3-ring binder.
See Class Schedule for these readings.

Three Management Information Systems textbooks have been placed on reserve at the library. Many class lectures will (generally) come from these books. If you would like to have your own copy of any of these books, please let me know and I will ask the Bookstore to order one for you.
