A major part of everything we know about libraries and the services they provide to their communities is provided by librarians themselves through the professional literature. In addition, most academic librarians are required to publish professionally in order to meet promotion and tenure requirements. Nevertheless, library education by its very nature (the terminal degree being at Master's level) provides limited training and experience in the mysteries of professional publishing. This all day workshop addresses that deficit. Content: Overview and Topic Selection, Research Design and Manuscript Preparation, Journal Selection and Manuscript submission, and Understanding the Editor’s Perspective.
This workshop can be delivered either in person or via the web.
"Libraries in the digital age are experiencing the most profound transformation since ancient Mesopotamian scribes first began gathering and organizing cuneiform tablets."
