Collaborating To Write Scholarly Communications: Find Inspiration From One Librarian’S Journey, Jennifer Little Kegler

Jennifer Little Kegler

During this session perspective authors will learn how one librarian wrote and published articles, as a sole author, co-author and with a group of authors. Creative opportunities and projects abound on a college campus; the harder part is converting these projects into publishable material. Learn how to take ideas and projects and publish them in scholarly journals as a librarian. Bring your own ideas and/or drafts, and we will work on them together. We will also identify publishing opportunities: both "traditional" journals and open access titles and provide links for more information.
