Submission Guidelines for Library Faculty Presentations
Who Can Submit
Library Faculty Presentations only publishes materials about work conducted by faculty and staff in the Division of Learning Resources Services at St. Cloud State University. For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Submit a Paper
1. Make sure your document is in an acceptable format. We can accept papers in Microsoft Word, Rich Text Format (RTF), or Adobe Acrobat (PDF). For presentations, we can accept either PowerPoint (PPT) or PDF. If you have extensive speaker notes in a Power Point presentation, we suggest submitting in PDF. For content in other media (video, audio, or presentation), send an email to email@example.com.
If you use a word-processing program other than Microsoft Word, look for an "export" or "save as" option in your program to save it as an Word or RTF file. If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Write an abstract for your paper. It can be any length. Please also select up to ten (10) keywords or brief phrases of two or three words. These are words that will help a user locate your paper through a search.
3. Submit the paper by emailing it as an attachment to email@example.com. Include an email message with the following information: abstract; keywords; and name, affiliation (department and university), and email address for each author. If the paper is already available online, please include the URL to the paper as published.
4. If you have any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Overview of the Process
OPTION 1 (no author review):
After you submit your text document, we will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of it and publish it on the site. All other formats will be published in the submitted format. You will be notified by e-mail when the paper is posted.
This is the preferred option.
OPTION 2 (author review):
After you submit your text document, we will create an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version. We will then send you a message asking you to approve the PDF version. Please look it over within 5 days and reply to email@example.com as soon as possible. At this stage, we're unable to make any changes beyond the truly necessary. You will be notified by e-mail when the paper is posted.
How to Revise Your Paper
If you would like to update or post a revised version of your paper on the site, follow the instructions in How to Submit; however, please specify when you submit the paper that it is a revision of a previously submitted paper.
A paper may be removed from public view when evidence of plagiarism or academic dishonesty (e.g., falsification of research) is provided by sending a request to the system administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, a formal review by the University will occur before final removal from The Repository.
