John W. Graham Library is hosting events for Academic Writing Month 2022

Posted: November 08, 2022

November is Academic Writing Month and John W. Graham Library is hosting a couple of events this month to mark it.

Zotero workshop: Wednesday, November 16 from 1:10 pm to 2:00 pm in TC22 (main Trinity College building at 6 Hoskin Ave).

Zotero is a free, open-source citation management tool that can help you gather and organize your citations, and generate bibliographies. It can be downloaded here on the Zotero website. In order to maximize workshop time, please download and install Zotero in advance, if possible, and bring your laptop along. Join Courtney Lundrigan from Graham Library to get an introduction to how to use Zotero to keep track of your sources and generate bibliographies. This workshop is not discipline-specific and will be capped at 25 participants. Please register here.

Graham Library Essay Extravaganza!: Wednesday, November 23 from 11 am to 1 pm in the Link room on the second floor, north end of Graham Library.

Bring your writing project (on computer or on paper) and join us for a focused writing session with your peers. We’ll be using the popular Pomodoro method, where we write for a specific period of time, take a short break, and repeat. If you find yourself needing a more structured environment for your academic writing or would like some accountability from your peers, this event is for you. We’ll be starting right at 11:00 am to ensure we have plenty of time to write and we’ll have coffee while supplies last. No registration required.

Watch our Instagram account @instagrahamlibrary for some additional tips on academic writing throughout the month! We know you have lots of writing deadlines coming up, so we hope you’ll be able to join us for one (or both) of these events.
