What You Can Include
In addition to your own materials, your customized lab manual can include reprinted materials from a variety of sources—articles from professional journals, popular magazines, as well as excerpts and illustrations from books or other documents. You may intersperse original material and reprinted materials, create a lab manual entirely of reprinted material, or include only your own material. It’s up to you!
No matter what the subject, we can help you produce a lab manual that you and your school will be proud of. You can submit your original work in print or digital format. We’ll work closely with you to determine the sequencing and sectioning of material, cover imagery, type of binding, page size, and any other special custom touches that would make it more useable for your students.
