The center will hold: critical perspectives on writing center scholarship
In The Center Will Hold, Pemberton and Kinkead have compiled a major volume of essays on the signal issues of scholarship that have established the writing center field and that the field must successfully address in the coming decade. The new century opens with new institutional, demographic, and financial challenges, and writing centers, in order to hold and extend their contribution to research, teaching, and service, must continuously engage those challenges.
Appropriately, the editors offer the work of Muriel Harris as a key pivot point in the emergence of writing centers as sites of pedagogy and research. The volume develops themes that Harris first brought to the field, and contributors here offer explicit recognition of the role that Harris has played in the development of writing center theory and practice. But they also use her work as a springboard from which to provide reflective, descriptive, and predictive looks at the field.

Review: Center Will HoldUser Review - Kelly Elmore - Goodreads
Excellent resource for my work on communicating with people outside the writing center (the Koster chapter). Also useful for thesis (Carino and Kail chapters). I can use the Koster aricle as a model for my thesis, as she incorporates a survey to deepen her lit review conclusions. Read full review
