First Year Writing Instructor Guide

Computer Lab/Room Reservations

Many sections of 121 come to the library for a class period or two to work in a lab on a research assignment. You can choose to do this with or without assistance from me (or another librarian). If you want a librarian to work with your class, please send me an email before reserving a lab so that I can be sure to find someone to work with you. Otherwise, feel free to fill out the online form below!
