Resource Library and Links
The Writing Wing at Elizabethtown College has a library of writing reference material available for quick use, or for visual sojourns through the realm of writing. These works are not for lending, but be our guest to come in and consult a book if you haven't scheduled an appointment with a writing tutor, the appointment is in the future, or you are curious about a fine point of the writing process but don't feel the need for a sit-down session with a writing tutor.
Here is our Grammar and Punctuation Tutorials, you can use as a resource guide.
Here are some excellent writing center Web sites:
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Writing & Communication Center: This site, besides offering expert guidance on technology- and science-oriented writing, in addition to general writing support, also offers a deep well of writing links and advice on speaking, such as for making presentations.
Middlebury College Writing Center: Middlebury is a well known center for writing excellence and study. It is host to writing conferences, including the famed Bread Loaf Writers' Conference. The site has some of the same resources found on other sites, but may be of particular use because it features tip sheets for students about how to response to peer writing and on how to craft elements of the writing process.
Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL): This site has a vast spectrum of guidance for writers, from extensive Modern Language Association (MLA) and American Psychological Association (APA) formatting examples to handouts that help writers build and sharpen their skills.
St. Norbert College established its writing center in 1977. It is a trove of resources for writers. The center's Web site also features resources for English language learners.
