Newbie Dispatches Episode One: Publishing For New Graduates

Posted by Editor on April 13, 2010

The Newbie Dispatches are a series of podcasts recorded exclusively by the Residency Interest Group on a variety of topics of interest to current and former library residents, current library science students, new graduates, and early career librarians.  Episode One regards the publication of a manuscript by a recent graduate, Megan Perez.

Megan is the current Librarian-In-Residence at the University of Arkansas.  He is also the co-editor and contributing author of a forthcoming book on library residencies scheduled for release in January of 2011 by Libraries Unlimited.

Please join us for our very first podcast as we discus the contents of the book, tips for writing a manuscript prospectus, and strategies for getting into the world of academic publishing.
