An exciting new service for advice on academic writing has recently started in the Library with staff able to advise on a range of writing skills from grammar to structuring an assignment. Please email us at aws@lincoln.ac.uk to arrange a 1-1 appointment and bring along a draft assignment. To support this initiative there is a new libguide about the Academic Writing Support available at guides.library.lincoln.ac.uk/c.php?g=133466 complete  with informative tabs.  You can drop into any of our sessions in the Learning Development room at the end of the ground floor of the Library during the times listed below:

  • Monday – 11.00 – 13.00
  • Wednesday 13.00 – 15.00
  • Thursday 14.00 – 16.00

Running from left to right, our team consists of Judith Elkin, myself (Daren Mansfield) and Cheryl Cliffe.

As part of a new series of videos on study skills at Lincoln, Tracy Lamping, a senior lecturer in the Business School, volunteers some insightful advice to students in re-editing their work and proof reading what they have written to increase their grade…her top tip for academic writing at university. Employing such scrutiny may achieve the difference between receiving a 2:1 and a First! Other useful videos are in the media pipeline, and will shortly be made available across various library subject guides.
