Updated May 2, 2024

Spring 2024 Webinar Series

Ask the Publisher! A Q&A with the Professionals

Join us for an open forum with several library publishing insiders! Learn the ins and outs of preparing, submitting, and publishing your work. Panelists represent publications including Library Hi Tech, Journal of Librarianship and Information Science, College & Research Libraries, Journal of Academic Librarianship, as well as a discipline-specific title, Journal of Agricultural & Food Information. The session will include a refereed panel discussion, followed by open Q&A where participants can ask their own questions.


The Research and Publications Committee supports ALAO members by providing opportunities to fund research projects, helping members discover available resources, and by facilitating inter-institutional research projects.
