About the Writing Centre

The Writing Centre's purpose is to provide assistance in writing, organizing and formatting academic papers in a safe and non-judgmental space. Whether you are in the early or the final stages of the writing process, the writing advisor will provide constructive feedback and recommend resources and strategies that are tailored to your needs. You can also receive help if you are looking to avoid plagiarism, understand your professors’ instructions and expectations, or improve your time management skills.

Lunch & Learn Workshops

At the start of each fall and winter semester, the Library and the Writing Centre put on a series of lunchtime workshops focusing on a variety of topics relevant to students starting or returning to university. We strongly recommend attending as many of the workshops as possible, as they provide essential and practical information on all aspects of academic life, such as doing research, citing, avoiding plagiarism, writing, and much more. 

The Lunch & Learn schedule will be posted here, on our social media, and in the library at the start of the next semester.

 

Citation Handouts

The Library has prepared the following citation handouts to help students cite their sources and avoid plagiarism. Each one provides examples of bibliography entries and in-text citations for various types of sources.

APA Style, 7th Edition

Chicago Manual of Style, 17th Edition (Notes and Bibliography System)

If you have any comments or questions regarding the handouts, or if you would like more information on citation styles, please contact the writing advisor or your program's librarian.
