Abstract: Writing for professional library literature can be a challenging experience, especially for new writers and new librarians. This article reviews a variety of how-to-write publications intended for librarians—those books and articles that provide advice and inspiration to aspiring library writers on how to publish in library literature. Applying his experience as a writer and as editor of the Journal of Library & Information Services in Distance Learning, the author also provides a list of tips on preparing article-length manuscripts to be submitted to library-related journals. When appropriate, special resources and tips are noted for writers working on distance learning subjects.
