As you prepare to study away next semester, please know that there are a variety of library and writing resources available throughout the Global Network to ensure your continued academic success.
Students and faculty at NYU Global sites have access to an extensive range of online full-text collections including books, journals, audio, video and images, and a variety of library services including email reference through NYU Libraries’ website. Become acquainted with the library services here.
Additionally, NYU’s Expository Writing Program in the College of Arts and Sciences has launched two new writing services that students can take advantage of:
- Online Tutoring for Global Sites. The NYU Writing Center now offers a space where any student in NYU’s Global Network can get help with his or her writing. Via Google’s video chat and document sharing functions, consultants and students work one-on-one, focusing on every stage of the writing process and on any piece of writing (with the exception of exams). Upon arrival, interested students can sign up online for remote tutoring time slots. The sign-up link will be shared by Academic staff in Accra.
- Resources for Writing is a series of Writing Guides that focus on the most essential and often challenging rhetorical moves in academic prose. Designed as mini-lessons, they take students through a step-by-step process that offers examples, explanations, and practice. These sources are now available here.
