Write for my series on computing for info pros!

Hello, everyone. I hope this spring is treating you well so far. Here is an update on a few of my writing projects.

I’m seeking authors for my edited series, Computing for information Professionals. The series will be published by Facet Publishing, which is the publishing company for the UK’s Chartered Institute for Library and Information Professionals (CILIP). For those of you outwith the UK, CILIP is similar to the American Library Association, but it encompasses all information professionals, whether they work in a library or another setting.

Here is the flyer about the series for information regarding scope and so on: Computing for Information Professionals. And here is the web page for the series.

In addition to editing this series, I’m also writing a book. You can read more about my forthcoming book, Mastering data and databases for information professionals, at http://www.facetpublishing.co.uk/title.php?id=301171#.VveeZeIrLIU. Or, if you don’t feel like clicking, here’s the cover, which is one of the most exciting parts:

This book will be the first in the series, If you feel any inspiration for writing a book that helps information professionals learn about anything relevant in the range of computing/technology and how they can use it in their work, please get in touch with me at diane.pennington@strath.ac.uk or leave a comment below.

I recently wrote a post for CILIP’s blog called 5 technical skills information professionals should learn. I am also working on an article for CILIP Update about linked data, which should be published in the May issue.

I look forward to hearing from you and all about your great book ideas!
