ASU Writing Lab offers services to students, faculty
The ASU Writing Lab, located in Wilson Hall, Room 314, is the only computer facility on campus that is staffed by tutors to aid students in their writing. The lab welcomes all ASU students and provides writing help, computer use, Internet research, and e-mail access. The lab also provides referral forms for instructors to specify student needs for individualized tutorials. The ASU Writing Lab's aim is to provide one-on-one writing instruction for all ASU students, including but not limited to clarification and organization of ideas, revising, expanding, and developing papers, understanding standards and specific rules of usage, answering questions on research and documentation, and helping students build self-confidence as writers. For details, including lab hours, contact Dr. Bryan Moore, director of composition.

ASU faculty contribute books for Iraqi university
Dr. Daniel Cline, Education, has been "raising" books for a special project. With the help of international student Crystal Machado of Pakistan, Dr. Cline is collecting books for donation to the University of Mosul, after reading a wish list of books in a blog by Najma, Donated books from ASU facultythe pseudonym for a young Communications Engineering student at the University of Mosul. In late August, Cline sent out a request to ASU faculty for books published in the last five years, in good condition, from mainstream academic disciplines. In early October, he shipped two boxes totalling 100 pounds of books. They arrived intact five weeks later. Cline continues to ship the donated books, noting that the deterioration of Iraq's educational system comes after decades of neglect, and that the decline of universities has been hastened by the assassinations and expatriation of many professors. Cline says simply, "I am a professor, and sending books for the university has a lot of meaning for me." Najma's mother, a professor at the University of Mosul, weighed in on the books as well. Najma wrote Cline, "Mom told me to tell you that there are people like you who do not allow us to hate America." For details, contact Dr. Daniel Cline.
