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. We have created walkthroughs to help you access our services: 

  • Virtual drop-in walkthrough (docx) (PDF)
  • 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 


Existing features will continue such as: 

  • Login with your GVSU account, the same way you would with Blackboard
  • The ability to connect sessions to specific courses/faculty
  • Simple user interface


Also, some writing center services are designed to support specific student populations (listed below). If you feel you need access to any additional services (link to website), please fill out our Additional Services Form or contact the director (Patrick Johnson -
