Chicago Manual of Style
How many of you have a subscription to the Chicago Manual of Style Online Edition? http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/home.html
This is the the go-to service if you are writing books. I find myself checking issues in my old beat-up volumne often. It's time to toss it and buy the new version. However, the online version would be so handy. If you don't use a specific style, you should. It makes your work professional and adherance to a style, whether it's the Chicago style or not, is one of the criteria MWSA reviewers and judges evaluate.
The normal cost per year is $35. Group discounts are per user up to 50 users. If we purchase subscriptions as a group, we could get decent discounts for the service. Here's the pricing. Any takers?
