Due to circumstances outside our control, there are some issues with the renewal of some of our journal subscriptions. As a result, we are currently experiencing a temporary loss of access to some journals and other resources. We hope to have this resolved soon, but in the meantime, if you’re not able to access an item, contact us at Ask a Librarian and we will work with you to obtain the item via Interlibrary Loan

The COVID home office isn’t always distraction-free. It can be hard to find a good time for one-to-one coaching sessions. Async coaching might be  for you.

What is asynchronous coaching?
With asynchronous coaching, students submit a draft to the writing center for feedback without a real-time coaching session. The coach reads your work and emails you the feedback within two days.

Who should use asynchronous coaching?
Async appointments are ideal for students stationed aboard ship, in a different time zone, or working full-time. Async appointments also work well for follow-up appointments, when you’ve already met with a coach on a first draft and need a second review.
