Call to Submit a Short Article to Academic BRASS!

Call to Submit a Short Article to Academic BRASS!

Interested in seeing your name in print? Want to add another line to your c.v.? Have something to share with other business librarians?

Articles are not formal scholarly articles and you can share your knowledge on a topic you probably know about already.

The Business Reference in Academic Libraries Committee of BRASS is seeking articles for the next issue of its online publication Academic BRASS. Academic BRASS is a newsletter--not a journal--that publishes issue-based articles and information for the general and educational interest of BRASS members and academic business librarians.

Topics of interest to the editor are pedagogy and business librarians, teaching business literacy in the wake of the financial crisis and resources for entrepreneurship. Book and database reviews are always welcome as well.

Maybe you have another cool idea – that’s fine too – get those submissions in!
