One of the most fundamental skills a librarian can have, no matter their
work setting, is writing. *Writing itself is such a broad topic that DC/SLA
is launching a Writing Series!*

Join us for the first installment of our *Writing Series: How to Write to
Develop a Professional Brand*. With so many writing platforms today itís
important to know the strengths and best practices for each platform. Our

digital platforms.
