Friday, October 25th

9:30 – 10:45 am

Mercy College, Manhattan Campus

Are you in (or hope to be in) a tenure-track position? Do you need to publish or present at conferences/panels for your job? Do you need to write specific types of articles for specific types of publications? Or do you just want to write or present for the profession, because you enjoy it (or want to see your name in print)? Whatever the case, many of us do write, many of us intend to write, and many of us are required to publish/present as part of our jobs.

What: The Librarians’ Research/Writing Support Group will meet to talk about opportunities and challenges, to network with other writers, and to discuss what kinds of resources/help will be most useful to our members. This is an initiative of the ACRL/NY New Librarians Discussion Group, but is open to librarians at any stage in their career as well as to library students.

It’s free! Beverages and snacks will be served!
