Writing 101: Student Activism: 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 and resources.  Please feel free to schedule an appointment with us using the green button under our photos. We're based at Lilly Library. And you can always get immediate help from a librarian at the Lilly and Perkins public service desks until midnight Sundays-Thursdays.

Cheers, Kelley and Carson
