The staff at Morton Publishing worked closely with me to develop our custom manual for our introductory microbiology course. At every step, they were courteous, prompt to respond to suggestions, and delivered a manual of exceptional quality at a very reasonable price.

I struggled for several years with finding just the right lab book–one that would combine the exact content I need using labs that would engage the student and not break my budget for supplies. I finally found what I wanted with Morton. I use their lab books for three of my classes now. I love them and so do the students.

I have really appreciated all that Morton Publishing Company has done to customize a lab manual for our students. We chose the lab manual to begin with because of the high quality materials. Using a custom manual eliminated unused pages and saved students money.

I look forward to using your customized lab manual again for this coming year.  It has been the best lab resource that I have ever used for my microbiology labs.

The customized lab manual is great and the students love it because of the big cost savings and because it contains only what they will need/use for the course. I will most definitely adopt it again and again.

We were considering a new laboratory manual for our Anatomy and Physiology classes that would 1) integrate what we already created/use as handouts, 2) incorporate publisher content with additional resources (egs. pictures of our own models/equipment), and 3) only focus on laboratory specific learning objectives.  To really accomplish what we wanted required us to make a custom laboratory manual that was not just a reduced version of already published material.  Morton was the answer for us.  We combined content from multiple Morton sources (egs. A&P manuals and Histology manuals) with our own and edited the content to align with our specific laboratory learning objectives.  The results was a cheaper, professional looking, focused and well received laboratory manual.

After trying several different microbiology lab manuals, I was overjoyed to find Microbiology by  Leboffe & Pierce.  In addition to well written, easily understood lab procedures, the manual contains high quality color photos of procedure results instead of just drawings.   The students are impressed by the real life results and also like the fact that it comes as a looseleaf 3-hole punch manual so they only have to carry the necessary pages to lab each week.  The publishing staff is also  easy to work with when customizing the manual to add some additional experiments.  I’m sticking with Morton for my 500+ microbiology students each semester. Try it- you’ll love it!

I am honored to work with the members of the Morton Publishing team!  I appreciate their dedication to the students and faculty they serve, receptivity to suggestions regarding curriculum and assessment, and generosity with resources.  I am happy to report that in addition to our science majors biology students, the students in the dual enrollment program will also use Pendarvis and Crawley’s second edition of “Exploring Biology in the Laboratory”.  The Morton team and the authors have performed a terrific revision to an already wonderful lab manual, and more students will benefit from it than before.  I highly recommend this lab manual!

Thank you so much for attending to our needs with your fine products.  We are so excited to be utilizing the lab books in a few weeks.  You have given us the kind of business attention that makes us feel like we are working with real people instead of a big corporation.  We hope to utilize your lab manual for a long time.
