Writing 101: Prisons and Imprisonment: Getting Started

Welcome to your Writing 101 course guide

We'll be working with your class to help you find materials and navigate the library's many services. As the class progresses, we can add links to helpful resources and webpages.

Please feel free to email us (contact information on the right) with your research questions. We are looking forward to working with you.

Cheers, Carson
