This webinar will discuss the “pocket” economics and history of publishing; participants will learn the advantages of an ISBN, how to buy a stack of ISBNs, and receive guidance about whether print-on-demand or going with a smaller printing house benefits your bottom line.
Librarians are the gateway for change in our communities, in corporate America, and educational systems. In 2020, our society is still attempting to find ways to include all individuals by fostering the awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The problem with this notion is many fail to conquer the first step, which is being open-minded. In a profession where we reach doctors, lawyers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and most importantly our youth, we must step out of our comfort zones to learn beyond our educational practices. To truly assist in our profession, we must accept a new proposal: dismiss preconceived notions and practice “open-mindedness,” which is the first step to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion.
