Wednesday, August 3, 2:00 – 4:00 pm on your DESKTOP
This webinar will build on an ALCTS E-forum that was held in December 2010 discussing writing in librarianship. Librarians, particularly those who work in academic settings, are often expected to do research, write, and publish. How does one get started doing this, especially if it does not come naturally? How do you get connected? What about time management, negotiating author rights, and writing collaboratively? Are book reviews worth doing? These and other questions are ones that new librarians may have, especially those on the tenure-track. Whether you are experienced in research and publication, or just starting out, please join us to discuss how to launch successful writing projects and how to sustain productive professional publications throughout your career. Presenters Eleanor Cook and Sandy Roe will collect questions and topics ahead of the webinar in order to facilitate a relevant discussion for the participants.
Virtual Trainers: Eleanor I. Cook, Assistant Director for Collections & Technical Services, East Carolina University, and Sandy Roe, Head of the Cataloging & Metadata Services Unit, Illinois State University
