After re-starting a collaborative partnership between the library and writing center at wright state university, the librarians and writing center staff involved wanted to compare data with other existing collaborations. With a limited amount of data available in current literature, they conducted an e-mail survey of librarians, writing center staff, and writing tutoring services staff from across the country. This survey found that the majority of participants had a writing center on campus and that around two-thirds of respondents had an existing partnership. The scope of these collaborations varied and many commented on a need for more communication, planning, and a shared space. Moving forward, many existing and future relationships between libraries and writing centers, or writing tutoring services, could benefit from increased strategic planning, assessment, training, and regular communication, whether or not they share a space.
