INFO/STS 4240: Textbook and course readings

Textbook

The course uses a course reader, which you can purchase at the Cornell Store.

The rest of the course readings are available on-line or will be handed out in class or via piazza. To access many of these readings through the links, you will need to be on the Cornell network, or logged in to the Cornell library through a proxy using your NetID. You can find out more about how to do this here.
