The Librarian Is In! Scholarly Publishing Clinic

City Tech Library Scholarly Publishing Clinic

This academic year, the library rolled out a new program: its Scholarly Publishing Clinic. The Scholarly Publishing Clinic provides assistance related to all phases of the academic publishing process. We offer support for the literature review and creating alerts, using citation managers, picking the best journal or publisher, author rights, using Academic Works (our institutional repository), how to create a Google Scholar profile and otherwise increase and document the impact of one’s scholarship.

The idea was to provide help to faculty a la carte where format and content can be guided by the faculty member’s need and availability. We created an appointment form to help maximize the quality of the consultation. Drop-in office hours provide faculty an opportunity to get help on short notice. We also offer one-on-one and small group consultations as well as departmental visits and workshops.

It’s always a pleasure to learn more about the scholarship of our colleagues outside of the library. When we meet face-to-face, the conversations are helpful not only to classroom faculty but also to helping us better understand how the library can address some of the challenges faced by our colleagues.

Drop-in hours are from 12-1 PM, every first Thursday for Spring 2019 and are subject to change every semester.
