You can check out the print textbook of the Bedford Guide to Genres for free for 2 hours at a time with your JWU ID at the library. You can scan a chapter or two to your email or print for free or simply read in the library for 2 hours at a time.
Always check your syllabus to make sure you have the correct version when checking out a textbook at the library.
Most ENG 1021 courses are using the Bedford Guide to Genres; your professor, your syllabus (and a librarian!) can help you identify your correct textbook using the syllabus in your ulearn course site.

Top Tips for Working with the Academic Success Center:
For 24/7 free online revision feedback, submit your paper to Smarthinking. Look for the link in jwuLink, under the Academics tab, under Academic Support Services.
Use Academic Search to search for articles on almost any topic. For example, if you're focusing on Texting while Driving use the search box to find scholarly articles using keywords such as "texting" or "cell phones", along with your angle, such as "alcohol".
Click Full Text on the left so you can read articles online.
Click Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) to read academic, peer reviewed articles.
However, if you need more in depth guidance on formatting go to the Purdue OWL.

If you use the library's databases for your research, you can copy and paste pre-generated citations - look out for the option as it may appear differently in each interface but is generally represented by an icon of quotation marks.
If you need to cite a resource not located in a database, I recommend using the OWL as a reference. You can also reach out to me or JWU Library for help with citations!
