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.
Be sure to check back regularly for future casts on conference updates, research in progress, and professional development workshops. Suggestions are accepted and welcome. Feel free to use the comment page to send us your request for a topic you’d like to see covered.
