I love to read about things in the newsletter that go beyond basic reporting. If you have hosted something cool or your institution is doing something really cutting edge or innovative, please submit an article on it.
Did you travel somewhere related to your job – tell us about it! Are you doing really cool collaborations within your community – let us know!
Our Procedures manual gives us some guidelines for submissions:
Material submitted for the Newsletter should follow good journalistic style. Please limit submissions to 400 words. Be concise and clear, and use simple sentences and active voice. A byline must accompany each article, stating the author's name, ALAO office or position (if any), and institution.
