Book It

Accessing online writing support

The Writing Center is now using a new online scheduling system called Book It. This new web-based program was custom built by the GVSU web development team to improve features and integrate all peer-to-peer Knowledge Market services (Writing Center, Speech Lab, Library Research Center, Digital Resource Center) with a single sign on. Below is the link to our video walkthrough, which shows how to sign up for appointments and access drop-in (first-come/first-serve) support.

We have also created screencap walkthroughs to help you access our services:

  • Virtual appointment walkthrough (docx) (PDF)


Book It includes the ability to: 

  • Schedule appointments for online or in physical locations
  • Drop-in for virtual sessions (for first come/first serve consulting)
  • Schedule group appointments for yourself and group members
  • Upload assignment sheets, rubrics, or papers when scheduling appointments
  • Integrate email support services through The Writing Center (replacing online web form)
  • Automatically send session summaries of consultations to your GVSU email account 


With our new scheduling system, you can continue to:

  • Login with your GVSU account, the same way you would with Blackboard
  • Connect sessions to specific courses/faculty
  • Work with a simple user interface
