Writing Library

The Writing Program is developing a library of books about writing and the teaching of writing. These can be found in Davis Library, on shelves just outside of the Writing Center/CTLR. They can also be found on MIDCAT. The books are available to borrow and can be checked out at the  circulation desk. Other books on writing and on diverse pedagogies can be found on the same shelves as part of the CTLR collection. Some texts are by Middlebury faculty (Molly Costanza-Robinson's Write Like A Chemist and others); all are acclaimed in the field of teaching college writing. Please feel free to recommend additional texts for our collection. Below are titles of our most recent acquisitions:
