«In the context of accountability demands, Babcock and Thonus offer an incredibly timely, paradigm shifting, professionally necessary book. Researching the Writing Center inspires confidence with its compelling account of what’s already been accomplished in dissertation research on writing centers, and motivates by calling attention to how much we still don’t know.
This book challenges the field to produce data-driven evidence to mediate between theory and practice. It provides exemplars of evidence-based practice in related fields that value social relations; it amasses findings of dissertation studies of writing center practice; it introduces research basics, and it suggests research methods and questions. Researching the Writing Center represents the next big step for writing centers – the creation of a research-based discipline. Brimming with methods and questions and examples and urgency, Babcock’s and Thonus’ book provides an invaluable resource just in time to respond to increased demands for accountability.» (Nancy Grimm, Professor, Director of the Multiliteracies Center, Michigan Technological University)

I really think that is the best part about the book, that it can be used as a tool not just for a WC but for research in general!
