Do you have a question for the panelists? Put it in the chat!
I have one for Chris -- Are there any specific recording apps that you can recommend?
For anyone: Do you have any tips for “getting your feet wet” or first steps for your first research/publication as a brand new academic librarian who doesn’t know where to start
I use an iPhone app called VoiceRecorder from TapMedia Ltd. Very simple.
A great place to get your feet wet are these publications like Baseline and DttP
They are good starting points typically because the editors will work with you.
Also collaborating with others (like they have mentioned) sometimes takes the pressure off. Especially if they are seasoned authors. :)
Yes, it is that same feeling being a contributor. Tom was a great editor and did lots of hand holding through the process
Thanks Dominique! Good to work with you, too.
I love the columns and articles. I learn so much from them.
This was an amazing presentation!!!
Where do you get ideas for what to write about?
I love that article - oranges and peaches is great
Lori, it is similar to someone asking for Taco Bell score when they wanted Pachelbel's Canon. Plus I have to agree with book and web site reviews as a great way to start!

thank you Susanne! That list is what I'm itching for :) Great presentation
And you too Laura and Chris :) Great advice to find a mentor
Q for Everyone: If your work does not allow time for you to work on research, how do you find a good work / life balance when working on writing?
One thing I find which helps me is to set bench marks for myself. Also, I suggest writing everyday. I write for at least a half hour - much of it, I toss, but I frequently am able to incorporate into columns, blogs, reviews, articles, and/or book chapters. etc.
John, that was a wonderful column!
I agree with Aimee. Write something every day, even if it is just a paragraph.
Great advice, thank you!
Wonderful panel, thank you all!
Lorri is exactly right. I have had positions do not allow time for scholarship. I block 8-9 am for writing. I officially start my day at 9 am.
Thank you so much. Such an accomplished group and really good tips.
Yes, wonderful!! Thank you all so much.
Thank you very much!
Fabulous panel everyone! Thank you!
Thank you all, it was super practical and helpful!
