Are you new to the academic publishing world?

Have you completed a conference presentation, research, or teaching

project that you would like to turn into a publishable article?

Are you just beginning your research and have a project in mind for which

you need to develop a literature review for your article?

This workshop will provide resources to help begin preparing your scholarly article for publication. It will provide you with resources to help you develop a literature review on your topic, assist you with selecting a journal to publish your article, and provide tips on sending your article in for publication. You will also look at common reasons why journals reject articles, and gain hands-on experience with using the Library’s resources.

Join Dr. Barbara Bonous-Smit and Prof. Suzy Sciammarella for a Library Workshop on  academic publishing.

Characteristics of Programs of Information Literacy that Illustrate Best Practices: A Guideline

Dear colleagues,
The ACRL Instruction Section seeks to recognize information literacy programs that exemplify the best practices delineated in the document, “Characteristics of Programs of Information Literacy that Illustrate Best Practices: A Guideline.” If your program is exemplary in any of the ten “Best Practices” categories, please consider applying for this honor. Programs that are found to be exemplary by the Information Literacy Best Practices Committee will be showcased on the IS website as part of a new professional development resource.  
To apply, complete the submission form [http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CRGW372]. Select one or more categories for which you would like your program to be considered, then describe how your program exemplifies each selected category. Be sure to include links to any web-based documentation that will help the committee.
Submissions will be judged using the “Best Practices Evaluation Rubric,” developed by the Information Literacy Best Practices Committee. The rubric includes criteria for each of the ten categories in the “Characteristics” guideline and will assist you in communicating the exemplary nature of your program. The Committee will judge each entry using the corresponding section of the rubric. Whether you apply for one or all of the categories, please carefully review the guideline and the rubric before filling out the Submission Form. Both documents are available on the ILBP website at:  http://www.ala.org/acrl/aboutacrl/directoryofleadership/sections/is/iswebsite/committees/bestpractices
The deadline for consideration before Annual is April 30, 2014.
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance, and we look forward to the receipt of your Submission Form. Send me any questions at goetzje@gmail.com.
Best regards,
Joe Goetz
Chair, Information Literacy Best Practices Committee
