Publishing is key for both name recognition and job retention (not to mention helpful in getting that great job in the first place). Getting published, though, can be a nerve-racking experience, but you don’t have to do it alone! We’re here to walk you through the process regardless of where you are in your publishing journey. Join us on Thursday, December 4 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm EST as we discuss all aspects of publications and publishing: how to get started, resources to turn to, where to consider publishing, etc. Questions, tips, experiences, and commiserations are all welcome.
Jacob Ineichen, ANMIG vice Co-chair, and Katy Holder, ANMIG student liaison, will be your hosts along with special guest expert Mary Beth Weber, Head, Central Technical Services at Rutgers University Libraries. The chat is open to all ALA members. To join the chat, please go to: http://connect.ala.org/node/231276 (See instructions below to register).
