Me in a book

Jun - 10 - 2008
Nicole C. Engard

My first book contribution has been printed!! I wrote 2 chapters for Thinking Outside the Book: Essays for Innovative Librarians.

Description
Professionals in all areas of librarianship will find inspiration in the essays collected here—each of them innovative tips for increasing circulation, enhancing collections, and improving flexibility. With extensive experience in the nation’s top libraries and media centers, the 73 contributors describe what really works based on their real-world experiences

Organized by subject, the essays offer succinct and practical guidelines for dozens of tasks. Topics include preparing and delivering distinctive presentations; forming a successful grant proposal; hosting a traveling multimedia exhibition; organizing effective community partnerships; writing blogs; hosting authors; creating cybertorials; preserving local culture—and many others.

My chapters are:

  • How to Start Your Own Blog p.45
  • Setting up a Quickie Wiki p.55

I haven’t gotten my copy yet, but I’ll write a review once I do.
