ALWD Citation Manual (first edition) Teaching Resources

Below are several types of files that are available for download. Note, there is a known bug with using Netscape to access or download WordPerfect files posted to the web—when you click on the link, you get a browser screen with gibberish. If you try to save the link to disk, it scrambles the file so that WP won’t open it. This is the reason that I’ve tried to post Adobe versions of many of the files. To download a WordPerfect version of a file, use Internet Explorer, not Netscape. If you still have trouble with the WordPerfect version, try the Adobe Acrobat (PDF) file. Please click on a section below.
