This is the time of year when I get many notes from those in process of writing a Best Practices for Government Libraries article, or who are interested in authoring one, asking if I can take their article late. And as usual, understanding how busy summertime can be for everyone (including me!), i'm extending the deadline. The new deadline is Friday, October 24, 2014. This should give everyone lots of time to write that article.
If you are thinking about writing, as the editor of Best Practices for Government Libraries, I heartily invite you to take this opportunity to author an article. Take this opportunity to get published.
For 2014 the topic is: Strong Roots, New Branches: Embracing Core Skills, Building New Ones and Expanding Your Impact in the Organization. It's a fantastic topic because you can write about it from so many different angles. Send me a note if you want some help on your topic and I'll give you some guidance! I love co-authored articles, so team up and write.
