“Getting Started with Writing and Presenting for the Profession”: NLDG meeting set for April 19th

The ACRL/NY New Librarians Discussion Group, and the ACRL/NY Mentoring Program would like to invite you to a discussion on Friday, April 19, from 9:30-11:00am:

“Getting Started with Writing and Presenting for the Profession”

Are you in (or intend to be in) a tenure-track position? Do you need to publish or present at conferences/panels for your job? Do you need to write specific types of articles for specific types of publications? Or do you just want to write or present for the profession, because you enjoy it (or want to see your name in print)? Whatever the case, many of us do write, many of us intend to write, and many of us are required to publish/present as part of our jobs. This meeting will be an informal discussion on what is expected of new(er) librarians when it comes to writing and presenting for the profession, and ideas on how to get started. We will also discuss mentorship in relation to writing and presenting, as well as collaboration, finding ideas/topics, different types of publishing/presenting venues, the editorial process, and carving out time to get it all done. This event will mark the beginning of an ongoing initiative, and will help us to develop a more targeted support system for academic librarians who are getting started with writing and presenting.

When: Friday, April 19th, from 9:30am – 11:00am
Where:  Mercy College, Manhattan Campus, 66 West 35th St., room 704
(directions: https://www.mercy.edu/about-mercy-college/locations/manhattan/directions/)

Coffee and snacks will be served!
