My first published article!

My first article came in today's mail. If you've been reading my blog, you know that I am a staunch believer in faculty outreach, especially when it comes to technology. I hope that a few more librarians have the kind of success with it that I have been fortunate enough to have at Champlain. And if you are, PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT IT! I'd love to hear what works at other institutions. It really can be an uphill battle so knowing that you have allies or new strategies to put into play is affirming and invigorating.

On a more personal note, I have to admit that it is exciting to see my name in print. I have been putting a lot of time into presentations for the last few years and this article came out of my presentation at Computers in Libraries last year. Still, it was nice to sit and write. And even nicer to have positive feedback and suggestions from David Free at C&RL News.

And that feeling of "first time published" is kind of nice. Is it silly to want to send a copy to my dad?

W00t! Congrats. I like that you're using Sarah Faye Cohen as your publishing brand. Are you using that as a consistent user name everywhere that you have professional presence (like LinkedIn, for example)? You really should consider it, if not.

Congrats Sarah! That was a quick turnaround from the April presentation to a September publication...go girl!

Nice work Sarah! Maybe you'll get your own column soon. I enjoyed the article and am excited to work with faculty on these issues.

Aww, thanks Sarah. You did all the work though. It came out great. Glad people are finding it useful!

Oh, if you want extra copies for parental units let me know. I think we have a few extras in the office.
