Are you in (or hope 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.
What: The Librarians’ Research/Writing Support Group has invited, ACRL/NY Member, Michael Handis to talk about generating writing topics and starting the research process, with plenty of time for group discussion and Q&A. We will also be spending some time checking in with everyone to see how your accountability buddies are working out (don’t worry if you don’t have one yet) and how everyone’s individual projects are progressing. This is an initiative of the ACRL/NY New Librarians Discussion Group and the Mentoring Program, but is open to librarians at any stage in their career as well as to library students.
It’s free! Beverages and snacks will be served!
