“Newbie Dispatches”: podcasts via ACRL Residency Interest Group

The ACRL Residency Interest Group has launched a new podcast series called the “Newbie Dispatches.”  It is a set of ‘casts on a variety of topics of interest to current library school students, recent graduates, early career librarians, and former and current library residents.

The first podcast is on publishing a manuscript for the first time, writing a manuscript prospectus, and getting into the world of academic publishing. The URL for this podcast is: http://acrl.ala.org/residency/?p=995

Our next cast will be similar, but will be a two-part cast with Kaetrena Davis-Kendrick, reference librarian at the University of South Carolina-Aiken. Kaetrena will discuss her experience with journal submission and publication, and offer advice to newer librarians who are considering publishing for the first time.

All of the casts are free and accessible by the public: http://acrl.ala.org/residency/

The group is also taking suggestions for topics for future podcasts.  If you have something you’d like to learn more about or hear discussed, just use the web form and send us a quick email: http://acrl.ala.org/residency/?page_id=9 or find us on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/ACRL-Residency-Interest-Group/113621396297
