“Academic Writing and Publishing” is a one-hour NASIG webinar specifically geared to academic librarians who wish to know more about what it takes to get published. It will focus on professional writing for librarians who are expected to do writing/research for their job or are interested for other reasons (if not required). We will cover the peer-review process and types of scholarly writing, tips on breaking into the publishing realm, learning the ropes, what to avoid, and will reserve time for specific questions from participants. The webinar is adapted from a NASIG preconference that was held at the 2016 conference in Albuquerque, NM.
