Medical Library Pilot Project: Supporting Writing Development in the Health Sciences

The goal of the project is to expand writing support for students, faculty and staff in the health sciences. The Health Sciences Library (UW HSL) has partnered with the Odegaard Writing & Research Center (OWRC) to implement trial writing appointments within the library space, to support the development of writing skills in disciplines that may not traditionally be thought of as writing intensive. The intended outcome is improved student access to scientific writing support. In conjunction with the OWRC, UW HSL will hire and train additional tutors, develop marketing tools, gather and analyze data to demonstrate the ongoing need and sustainability of the project, as well as identify future directions and partnerships for writing support in the health sciences.
