LIHNNK-Up

All members of LIHNN are welcome to contribute to LIHNNK Up.

We particularly encourage contributions from para-professional staff and anyone who has not previously written for publication.

Members of the Editorial Board would be pleased to “mentor” new writers and provide advice on what makes a good readable contribution.

See What can you write about? for some suggestions.

 


What could you write about?

Really it is up to you as we are looking for topics of interest to health library and knowledge services staff.

You could write about any of the following:

  • something new that you have used or your library has introduced
  • an overview of a piece of software such as a social media tool
  • lessons learned (good or bad) from doing something differently in the library
  • good news that you want to share with LIHNN
  • an account of events and courses attended. For conferences and course please include what you found most valuable and what you will do differently from having attended the event or course.
