A Simple Click of the Mouse: HarperAcademic Online Catalogs and Ordering Desk Copies

There are many occasions during the working week when I sit in my office and give thanks for the Internet since it truly makes many aspects of performing my job a much easier task. Here at HarperAcademic we eagerly embrace the brave new world of technology, as I am sure you do in the world of academia. We have recently begun placing our subject area catalogs on this blog as downloadable online pdfs and the response has been enormous. All of the catalogs include links to related resource content on the web to provide a fluid interactive experience that goes beyond the traditional printed catalog. And, of course, they are kinder to the environment than printed catalogs, making them the perfect documents for these carbon footprint conscious times.

If you have yet to experience the joys of HarperAcademic's online catalogs, then why wait any longer? You can discover the works of the world's most influential minds such as Martin Heidegger in the Philosophy catalog; learn all you ever needed to know about writing that novel you've been putting off forever from writing mavens such as William Zinsser in the Writing Guides catalog; and go green and eat only locally-grown produce for one year with Barbara Kingsolver in the Environmental Studies catalog.

Finally, I have saved the best for last. If you decide that you would like to assign our books as a required text in your classroom, you can easily order desk copies online. Isn't technology wonderful?
