This guide is unfinished!  It will change over the next several weeks as content is updated, added, and removed.  Until this guide is complete, please contact one of the librarians listed on the right for any questions regarding the Research Writing Studio.

Our Goal

The goal of the Research Writing Studio consultant program is for peer consultants to facilitate and scaffold the research and writing process for students in the participating classes. The goal of this guide is to provide some background information on the research process for the peer consultants. Most of the resources you will need will be located on either the library guide for the course you are working with (see below) OR the main Waldo Library homepage. Please make an effort to become familiar with these pages.

Writing Studio Class Guides

These are links to the specific library guides for the courses involved in the Research Writing Studio for Fall 2013. Research writing consultants should make an effort to become familiar with the resources for the course they are working with. In addition, the students you work with should be directed to these guides whenever possible, as they contain the most relevant library resources for the students in these courses.
