This version of Strategies for Technical Communication in the Workplace has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)*

Complete but streamlined coverage, with a focus on audience and purpose – Based on the acclaimed Technical Communication by Gurak and Lannon, Strategies for Technical Communication in the Workplace 3rd edition (PDF) prepares individuals for workplace writing through a concise and clear writing style, numerous sample documents, practical applications, useful checklists, and coverage of technology and world issues. The latest 3rd Edition addresses changing technology in the workplace with updated examples, a complete chapter on social media, and sample documents. This brief and very affordable etextbook is accessible to individuals of all writing levels.

*The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege critical thinking and inquiry over rule-following and rote recall.
