Need help with a writing assignment?

Do you need to find information about how to do a writing assignment such as creating an annotated bibliography, doing a literature review, writing a business plan, or writing a book review?  If so there is a How to Guides section on the Library’s website.  It’s under Research Help.  The guide is called Writing Assignments.

Librarians at the Reference Desk can also help you with finding sources of information that you can use for these projects, such as research articles, citations, books, and literature review articles.  Just Ask-A-Librarian either at the first floor reference desk (next to the pendulum) or online.

For help in writing the actual assignment, there is a Writing Center on campus in the Learning Resources Center, they have tutors who can help with writing assignments.

If you can’t make it to the Writing Center, there is an online service called Live Homework Help.
