Librarian-Educator-Author

Office alcove (2)Ever since I got my PG Cert, I’ve been meaning to write up my project report into a journal article.  I finally did so last weekend, and it was submitted to an appropriate journal a couple of nights ago.  Now, I have to wait to see if it meets with approval!

There’s only one way to keep one’s hopes up at this point, and that’s to have more than one article submitted.  Flushed with success, I wrote a second one, this time not such a mammoth effort, but sharing a recent user education success.  That one has just been emailed off as well – to a different journal, I hasten to add.

What I need to do now, is some research-based writing.  Mind you, it’s only a few weeks since a joint collaboration was submitted to a historical journal; at least that article did directly touch on my recent researches, so maybe I shouldn’t feel too guilty…

Spoken Paper Becomes Footnoted Article

I gave a paper about my most recent researches into St Andrews’ historical legal deposit music at the Musica Scotica conference, a couple of weeks ago.  I was subsequently asked by another organisation if I would write a paper for a journal.  Luckily, the Musica Scotica spoken paper had been typed out in full, complete with reasonably good footnotes, so with the approval of the committee, I worked it up into a proper paper for submission, and now I await a decision.  It would be good to see it published.
