We have also extended the deadline for expressions of interest for membership of the Committee of the LAICDG. Being an active member of a library committee can be a great way to help out in your field, meet current peers and future colleagues and keep up-to-date with new developments in the information profession field.

Writing for Academic Publication: LAICDG event

There are so many ways to further your career development as an information professional, and one of those is writing for an academic publication. This is sometimes overlooked as a plausible avenue for those in the field, but given its growing importance, the LAICDG is delighted to announce a workshop by Helen Fallon, Deputy Librarian at NUI Maynooth.

The workshop aims to cover areas such as peer-reviewed journals, books and blog posts. As it is a workshop, there will be a strong emphasis on practical participation in drafting a piece of writing during the workshop.

This is a wonderful opportunity to gain experience in an area that few in the field possess and to work under the guidance of somebody with practical experience. Given the nature of an event like this, and the high demand that we expect to receive, tickets are limited, so we strongly advise to book your place as soon as the tickets are advertised.

Booking opens on Eventbrite on September 5th at 7pm and are priced at €10 (waged) or €5 (unwaged). Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter (@laicdg), Facebook or email us (laicareerdevelopment [at] gmail.com).
