I have references that haven't been added and are not part of the documents in the LibGuide. I've gotten publication lists from several faculty members, and this is helpful in identifying new references to add. I've only included references you've published for the year you've been at CDU. If you want to see which of the references I have in the EndNote library or send me the publication list from your CV (along with the dates you've been at CDU), email me at email@example.com.
