Publishing Opportunity for ALA Members

The 2007-2008 New Members Round Table Scholarship, Research, and Writing Committee encourages you to submit an article to be considered for publication in the Spring 2008 Footnotes print issue. Selected articles will appear in the new Scholarship and research for new librarians ( supplemental section of Footnotes).

The Scholarship and research for new librarians supplemental section is dedicated to provide an ideal opportunity for new librarians to get published and make an impact as a new library professional. New librarians from all types of libraries are encouraged to submit proposals.

While articles on a variety of topics will be considered, authors are encouraged to explore topics related to their experiences as new librarians or topics scarcely covered in the library literature or in library education.

Proposals should be submitted electronically for consideration by October 1, 2007 to:

Maureen Barry

Librarian for First-Year and Distance Learning Services

Wright State University

(937)775-2533 (ph)

Proposal guidelines:

Please submit a proposal describing the article topic in less than 250 words. Remember to include your name, job title, contact information and ALA member number.

*Authors are required to be NMRT members at the time of proposal submission.

Tentative deadline for article submissions: January 10, 2008

I've been writing a blog about my Adventures in Library School for the past two years and in less than six months I'll graduate. It's time to start a new blog, this one about my professional life. Stories are what we are all about whether they are text, pictures, photographs, or spoken words. We are also about sharing those stories. Please join me as I continue the adventure.
