If you're looking for reference guides to the sort of writing done in your discipline - and you've already spoken to your professor to get his or her take on it - we can recommend a few. SUNY Oswego is in the process of developing guides to writing in specific disciplines of our own, but in the meantime there are some very good guides prepared by other colleges and universities available online. Give these a try:
- Harvard Writing Project Student Writing Guides
- George Mason University Writing Guides
- Purdue Online Writing Lab Subject-Specific Resources
- Marquette University Department-by-Department Reference Guide
