Reminder: Research Writing Party this Thursday!

Posted on 10/18/21 12:53 PM

The IUP Libraries and Jones White Writing Center are sponsoring a Research Writing Party! Come to the second floor of Stabley (in the Library) on Thursday, October 21 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. to learn more about research and writing-oriented services, meet with reference librarians and writing tutors, and much more!  

Our Research Party will feature:

  • Therapy Dogs
  • Free pizza and refreshments
  • Writing-related games and prizes
  • Tutorials and information on research and writing at IUP
  • Roving résumé reviews with the CPDC
  • Prize drawings every 30 minutes for students and faculty who visit the party
  • Students will be able to ask questions, sign up for a tutorial, get handouts and help sheets on various information. Students can “drop in” for a short while or stay for the party and work with our Writing Center and Library staff on a one-on-one or small group tutorial. 

Faculty who bring their students are also entered for prize drawings! 

Some of the topics include:

  • Learning how research is done in different fields including STEM, Business, Education, Social Sciences, and Humanities
  • Getting help with finding and integrating sources
  • Using library databases and search features
  • Writing research-based arguments
  • Integrating sources and avoiding plagiarism  
  • Organizing your sources and writing
  • Finding your voice as an academic writer
  • Resources from the Writing Center and Library

We look forward to seeing you there!
