Writing 101: Disney: Getting Started

Decoding Disney and Breaking the Disney Spell with Lisa Andres

Welcome to your Writing 101 course guide

 I'll be working with your class to help you find materials and navigate the library's many services.

 As the class progresses I can add links to helpful resources and webpages.

 Please feel free to schedule an appointment with me via the green button under my picture/name. I'm based at Lilly   Library. You can always get immediate help from a librarian at the Lilly and Perkins public service desks until midnight Sundays-Thursdays.

Cheers, Danette
