New Librarians

Publish or Perish? Librarian Publishing - Past, Present and Future more information
Friday, December 12, 2008
1:00pm - 4:00pm
Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus

Most academic librarians are encouraged, if not required, to publish. And tenure requirements can be vastly different from institution to
institution. How does publishing, or the pressure to publish, affect our roles, our professional lives, and our ability to succeed?

This session will focus on traditional and non-traditional publishing for academic librarians. Speakers, from local institutions, will present on the history of publishing for librarians, publishing in areas outside of LIS, and publishing alternatives. We will also provide ideas on how to stay in touch with what’s going on in the publishing arena, and tips on developing a professional portfolio. An informal question and answer session will follow.

This session is open to all librarians (new and well-seasoned) and to library school students. Please come and discuss your questions, ideas and concerns with the group. A light snack will be provided.

Special Collections and Archives Discussion Group

ACRL/NY is forming a discussion group for archivists and special collection librarians in the New York Metropolitan area (including Long Island and Westchester County). The Archives and Special Collections Discussion Group brings together archivists and special collections librarians who work in academic and research settings so that we may discover our commonalities, discuss our mutual challenges, and seek solutions through information sharing and collaboration.

Our first meeting will consist of a round table discussion to explore possible directions. Join us; as a new member you can help shape the future of the Archives and Special Collections Group.
