Yes. I read it.

I do find it odd that some people do not find the American
Psychological Association Manual of Style 7th edition as exciting as I do.
It took ten years to come out.

The old version just sat there as social media happened,
blogs sort of unhappened and rebecame, eBooks eBooked, and
you don't know the fights I had about what to do about a journal
article without a DOI. 

It was buried on page 131 or 7 of the 6th edition. I used
to charge people with the book open like a heretic of order and documentation.

"What?...You can't handle the truth?" I'd say throwing my hands up in the air and stomping off full of knowledge.

But it was old knowledge. It was old ways.

See, we all have change come at us. It is there, wisdom
lets us take in a new way. 

The William C. Bonaudi Library is proud to offer LIB 101 :
Academic Research Skills.
In this course, we are APA all the way. 

Join us.

You're going to lose your mind over the square brackets.


I am not kidding.
