WriteOn Fridays

#WriteOn Fridays at KU Libraries – A perfect place for faculty to catch up on their personal research and writing

Need to get away from it all to make real progress on your research and writing? 

Hide out in Watson Library 410 on “Final Fridays,” the last Friday of each month – October 2018 through April 2019 (except December).  The room will be open from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm on the following dates – all Fridays, of course:

  • Oct. 26th
  • Nov. 30th
  • Jan. 25th
  • Feb. 22nd
  • Mar. 29th   
  • Apr. 26th

Think and write to your heart’s content in this enclosed work area, which provides quiet space away from life’s usual interruptions, while you enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages to keep your energy up.

No need to register in advance – just join us on any or all of these dates to spend an hour or stay all day! Signs will be posted directing you to the space from the Watson Library lobby.

If you would like to consult with a specialist, either during these events or at other times that suit your schedule, please contact Lyn Wolz (lwolz@ku.edu). Specify what kind(s) of help you might need – GIS, digital humanities, EndNote/Zotero, open access, copyright, KU ScholarWorks, etc. – and we’ll connect you with the right person.

So, mark your calendar – save these dates and make your own work a priority!
