ACRL New Member Discussion Group announcement June 30, 2009

Filed under: Conferences — ellie @ 5:21 pm

Going to ALA Annual? Join us for the ACRL New Member Discussion Group on Saturday, July 11, 2009, 10:30 am – noon, the Hotel InterContinental—Exchange Room, 505 North Michigan Avenue

Our topic is “The Publication Process—Getting Published in LIS Journals.” We will hear the following presentations:

Writing to Write: Kickstarting the Publication Process
Emily Drabinski, Electronic Resources and Instruction Librarian, Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus

Best Practices for Beginners: Getting Published – From Inspiration to Publication
Lisa Carlucci Thomas, Digital Collections Librarian, Yale University
Karen Sobel, Reference & Instruction Librarian, University of Colorado, Denver

Targeting Teaching Faculty for Collaborative Publications
Linda Hofschire, Research Consultant, University of Colorado, Boulder

We will also have time to share experiences and lessons learned, and to discuss your questions about publishing. The ACRL New Member Discussion group is for new (and aspiring) academic librarians. We
meet twice a year–at both ALA conferences–to chat about whatever is on our minds. It’s an opportunity for networking and a friendly place to ask any questions you have about succeeding in academic libraries.

Questions? Interested in getting involved? Contact Merinda Hensley, Convener, ACRL New Member Discussion Group, mhensle1@uiuc.edu
