Writing and publishing is an important aspect of librarianship. Whether you are writing to earn tenure or a promotion, writing to share your knowledge and experience with colleagues around your region or across the globe, documenting policies and procedures for your department, or a student writing to meet course requirements, writing is something that many of us do as part of our professional lives. The act of writing can be challenging or can stall for a number of reasons, and there are a variety of self-directed or group-directed ways to overcome the challenges many of us experience when we write. Join us to discuss tips, strategies, tools, or apps that people use to work through the writing process, and complete an article, book, or other writing project.
This e-Forum was presented on September 18-19, 2018. For a complete summary of this session, view The Write Stuff: e-Forum Summary.
