Want to find available statistics or data sets for your research or for your class to use in assignments? Wondering what the heck that Data Management Plan requirement in your federal grant application is all about? Need some help strategizing how to keep your research data effectively organized and documented for your own sanity and for re-use in the future? Want to figure out the best disciplinary or local repository to deposit your data? We are building research data services in the Libraries with these issues and others in mind.

Dr. Mary Reichardt, Associate Director of Internal Grants and Writing
One of the most important aspects of good writing is readability. In grant writing in particular, readability can be key as to whether or not your grant is funded. On average grant reviewers spend just a few minutes reading a grant proposal before relegating it to the “yes,” “maybe,” or “no” pile. You need to ensure that your proposal lands well.

Dr. Susan Callaway, Associate Professor of English / Director of the Center for Writing
From carpal tunnel syndrome to headaches, our bodies are probably telling us that we are doing too much as writers. This is ironic, of course, because most of us are trying to write more—desperate to find time to immerse ourselves in our own scholarship. But this will mean more time sitting in front of a screen.

Every Day Doesn't Mean Every Day: Dr. Susan Callaway, Associate Professor of English and Director of the Center for Writing, describes why regularly scheduling time for writing matters, and how you can make it a reality.

I'll admit that I have this passion. For someone who loves words and sentences and the ideas behind them it's all too tempting to want to tinker with someone else's writing. And some faculty, like some students, are happy to have you do it: just fix it! they cry. But writing resists efforts to rush it or mechanize it or provide a quick fix. Good writing is an art, inseparable from the skills, personality, and spirit of the writer. One alters another’s draft at great peril.
