Online Writing Labs

Online Writing Labs (OWLs) are writing help centres. Students can go to these sites to find information about research techniques, writing styles, academic referencing, proper use of grammar, and so forth. There are many different University OWLs available and many of them provide writers with access to useful handouts or guide sheets. Below are samples of some of these OWLs.
