Writing Question of the Week
What happened to the Purdue OWL News?
Between our OWL coordinator changes, departmental exams, a couple of cross-town moves, etc., the Purdue OWL News fell off the map the last few weeks. But we're back on our weekly school-year schedule. See The OWL Help Nest below to help answer others' questions, or submit some of your own so that Purdue OWL News can serve up some fresh engaging content next issue!

What's Happening on OWL
- OWL Eye on...New Technologies We've begun to test a piece of software called TutorTrac in order to better track and serve the Purdue community visiting the Writing Lab. This system will replace our current clipboard-and-paper method of gathering information about who's visiting us.
What's Happening in the Writing Lab
- OWL Eye on...Fall Schedule We are currently finishing the final details of the Writing Lab at Purdue's Fall 2004 schedule for workshops and conversation groups. Look for a complete listing in next week's Purdue OWL News.
