Spend Time at Your Library

Have you visited the library lately? If not, stop by during open hours and take a look around!

You'll find friendly people to help (if you need it) in the Information Commons and at the Circulation Desk on the first floor. 

There are study rooms on each floor, and counters that many students are using for studying on the first and second floors. There's lots of comfortable seating throughout the library where you can read, relax, or visit with friends. We hope to see you soon!

November 8 Colloquium

When the Lines You See are Crow's Feet: Self-Efficacy in Tutoring Nontraditional Student Writers
Thursday, November 8th
4:00 pm - Ackerman Hall 210
Free & open to the public - Refreshments provided

Guest Presenter: Donna Evans, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of English/Writing
Writing Center Director

Traditional-aged students training to tutor writing often express doubts about how they will engage in a meaningful, face-to-face dialogue with a student who is decades older without appearing disrespectful. Dr. Evans will explain results from a qualitative study that investigated perceived self-efficacy among experienced, new, and potential writing tutors, including building rapport, determining directive or nondirective strategies, and discussing patterns of error. A Library resource list is available for those who wish to do further research.
