WSIP Library

WSIP is committed to supporting writers in every stage of the writing process. In addition to our one-to-one, small group, and workshop services, WSIP hosts an on-site library for patrons. The WSIP Library includes fiction and non-fiction books for all university academic levels.

Our collection focuses on texts that can help support readers in the process of developing writing skills and succeeding in personal and academic writing endeavors.  The Library is available to all UA students, staff, and faculty. To register as a Library patron, visit WSIP.
