Among the top used titles in Academic Complete is The Craft of Research by University of Chicago Press—and it is being updated from the 3rd to 4th edition this week! To prepare for this important update:

  • Check whether you have the 3rd edition saved to your Bookshelf. If you do, search for the 4th edition in your library and add it to your Bookshelf.
  • Check whether you have any notes, highlights, or bookmarks in the 3rd edition. If you do, decide what you want to keep and create them in the 4th edition.

After Thursday, January 19 you’ll no longer have access to the 3rd edition, so take a few minutes today to transfer them to the new 4th edition!
