Persuasive Papers

What is Persuasive Writing?
Persuasive writing, used in an argument essay, utilizes logic and reason to show that one idea is more legitimate than another idea. It attempts to persuade a reader to adopt a certain point of view or to take a particular action. The argument must always use sound reasoning and solid evidence by stating facts, giving logical reasons, using examples, and quoting experts.

Library Website

   Palm Beach State College Library







The Library Homepage is the gateway to numerous library services for Palm Beach State College's Distance Learners. From this website you may search our online catalog for print books, retrieve tipsheets for research projects, and link to services provided by the library. However, the Library Homepage is different from our portal page, which is the access point for all electronic resources.

The portal page, and its discovery tools, will be the page you automatically come to once logged in.  (See the box below.)
