Faculty/Staff Fridays – the Write Stuff
Finding a spot for uninterrupted writing can be as challenging for faculty and staff as it is for students. That’s why the Communication Skills Center (CSC) and Heterick Memorial Library (HML) have teamed up to offer Faculty/Staff Fridays from noon to 5 p.m. each week on the second floor of the library.
The library offers quiet workstations, access to resource materials and wireless access for your laptop.
In addition, CSC Director Melanie Caw Woods is available to give feedback on writing projects, or to answer questions about various style requirements. Call ext. 2186 for an appointment
Reference librarians Traci Welch Moritz and Kathleen Baril can answer questions about research strategy, accessing databases or requesting materials through ILL or OhioLINK.
Whether it’s a dissertation, book manuscript, article, grant application or other project, faculty and staff members can find both the resources and environment to make the project easier.
Q. May I come late or leave early?
Q. Do I need to make a reservation?
A. Nope! Just show up ready to write.
Q. Do I have to talk with a CSC representative or a librarian?
A. No. Someone from the staff will be available during Faculty/Staff Fridays if you wish to ask for assistance. HML and the CSC are offering their space and services for use in the manner you see fit.
Q. I can't fit Fridays into my schedule this quarter. Can I still use the CSC? Are the librarians still available?
Absolutely! If you are working on a dissertation, book manuscript, article, grant application or other writing project that would benefit from a second set of eyes, call the CSC for an appointment with a professional staff member. The service is free and open to anyone on campus.
Reference Librarians are on duty from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., weekdays, 6-9 p.m., Monday-Thursday and 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. each Sunday during the academic year. You are also welcome to make an appointment for personal research assistance by emailing your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
