ALIA Sydney Presents: From Little Things Big Things Grow: preparing to present and write a paper

It's conference season with the ALIA New Librarians Symposium and Library Technicians Conference both happening this month and the ALIA Biennial have already released their call for abstracts for next year's conference in Sydney. 

Have you thought you would like to present a paper at a conference? 

But don't know where to start? 

Or maybe you've done it before but would like to brush up your skills and get some insiders tips? 

Well, the latest ALIA Sydney event is here to help you get your hands dirty and start to grow your little ideas into big ones. 

This half day workshop is to help you develop confidence and learn some tips and tricks about how to put together a conference paper covering everything from pitching the idea to your manager, submitting an abstract, working with colleagues and brushing up your presentations skills. The workshop will also explore writing a small piece for a professional publication such as inCite as this can be great way to hone sharing your ideas.

Janet Fletcher (Director, Information Services Department, UNSW and Co-Convenor for the ALIA 2012 Biennial) 

Alyson Dalby (InSync Surveys and former Co-Convenor ALIA New Librarians Symposium)
