The world of publishing can be overwhelming, especially for first-time writers and newer librarians. Is my idea good enough? Is my article articulated well enough? Will anyone read it? These are all common questions you might have. Most importantly, you want to make a good first impression among your colleagues.

Here we offer a writer’s survival toolkit to help throughout the publication process
