Yesterday the Academic Writing Support team (including myself) had their photo taken in preparation for the new semester which begins on Monday 18th September. Cheryl Cliffe is on the left while Judith Elkin, the AWS manager, is on the right. We hold drop-in sessions in the Learning Development room on the ground floor of the Library (starting on the 25th September) and 1-1 appointments throughout the year. Currently, we are planning some workshops for October and November which cover a range of study skills areas such as essay writing, note-taking and strategic reading (et al.)
Instead of embedding this YouTube video as I would normally do, I decided to embed the tweet from my @LINCLibrarian twitter account. It features the Academic Writing Support (AWS) manager, Judith Elkin, answering questions about what the services does to help students with their assignments. If you would like to book an appointment or turn up at one of our drop-in sessions then please see the AWS guide http://guides.library.lincoln.ac.uk/aws
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
