Graduate Students' "Write-In"

Call it a "write-in," "writing retreat" or "write-a-thon," the idea is to commit to a block of time to work on your writing project. Writing Tutors and dedicated fellow grad students provide accountability, encouragement and moral support. Planning to write every weekend? Get energized by these Friday sessions. Planning to take weekends off? Write efficiently on Fridays and feel happier and more relaxed on Saturdays!

2014-15 Information Literacy Grants Faculty Panel

As college instructors and librarians well know, helping students engage in research as a process of inquiry is a tremendous challenge, particularly in a digital age of information overload. The IU Libraries’ Information Literacy Grants offer opportunities for course instructors and librarians to collaborate in developing or revising courses that integrate information literacy throughout the academic term. During this panel session, grant participants will share their experiences in integrating information literacy outcomes, assignments, and assessments into courses in a variety of disciplines.
