Just a note that Info Career Trends, LISjobs.com's free electronic professional development newsletter, is winding down the year and celebrating the season with a few changes:
First, individual articles are now online at the new Info Career Trends blog. This means a new RSS feed: feeds.feedburner.com/InfoCareerTrends, so please update your subscriptions. But also, and more importantly, it means YOU now have the ability to comment on articles and add your own ideas and input.
The Library Career People column you know and love is also changing over to a blog format in order to facilitate communication and to provide more timely answers to questions. Q&A columns will no longer appear in their entirety in this newsletter, but will be replaced by highlights from recent blog posts and conversations. Subscribe to the Library Career People blog separately at feeds.feedburner.com/CareerQaWithTheLibraryCareerPeople.
Call for Papers:
Why not think about writing for Info Career Trends? I’m currently seeking queries for the May 2008 issue, for which the theme is “Show me the money!” Potential topics for this issue include: finding and landing personal grants, awards, and scholarships; getting funding for conferences, workshops, and other continuing education opportunities; financing an MLS, Ph.D., or LTA degree; strategies for earning a raise or promotion at work; negotiating starting salaries.
E-mail queries outlining your proposed article to email@example.com, and see ICT's contributor guidelines at: http://lisjobs.com/career_trends/?page_id=3.
