Sure, librarians read a lot. But many aspire to be authors, too. At a discussion Saturday morning during the midwinter American Library Association conference, young librarians and those still in library school were offered tips from their colleagues on how to get published. Here are some of the recommendations:
Write book reviews.
Find a publication that covers your area of expertise, and pitch an article to its publisher.
Find a topic no one’s written about.
Pair up with a more experienced colleague and offer to help him or her write a paper. —Andrea L. Foster
