    Are you a tenure-track library faculty who is suffering from "Pandemic Brain" and struggling to come up with topic ideas for publications? Or do you have publications that you think fellow CUNY junior library faculty can benefit from? If the answer is yes then this workshop is for you.


    The LACUNY Junior Faculty Roundtable invites you to a Publication Forum. During the first half of this event, we will take you through a workshop to help you develop and narrow down potential publication topics for yourself. The second half of the event will be a paper review. We invite participants to submit drafts of potential publications to review in workgroups as well as engage in discussion of potential publication ideas.

    Register in advance for this meeting:  


    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting
