NaNoWriMo in the AcadLib: A Case Study of National Novel Writing Month Activities in an Academic Library
Watson, Alex P.
Public Services Quarterly, v8 n2 p136-145 2012
The J. D. Williams Library at the University of Mississippi launched a pilot program during the 2010 National Novel Writing Month, hosting related events to determine community demand and how such efforts could be quantified. Using participant-submitted word counts and the event's own tools, researchers were able to ascertain that such events had a positive impact on participants' writing output, at least by the standards of National Novel Writing Month itself, and that there is sufficient community interest to hold future events in an academic library setting. (Contains 4 figures.)
