Since 1976, the Writing Lab has supported writers on Purdue's West Lafayette campus through a variety of services and community engagement initiatives using student-centered best practices. The Online Writing Lab (OWL) has been an extension of the Writing Lab since 1993, and offers global support through online reference materials and services. The Writing Lab and OWL, both part of the Department of English, are informed by and engage in research within the discipline of Composition and Rhetoric, including the subfields of writing center studies, writing program administration, second language studies, and professional writing.
These datasets and other publications associated with OWL are also available in the Purdue e-Pubs document repository: https://docs.lib.purdue.edu/writinglabsdrp/.
