Many information professionals, understandably busy with both day-to-day responsibilities and keeping up with our rapidly-changing field, may feel overwhelmed by the idea of making original contributions to the profession. One of the best ways to remain current and connected, however, is by taking the time to contribute through writing for publication. Our research and writing activities also allow us to engage in the time-honored library tradition of sharing information with others -- only, in this case, with our colleagues. Writing for the library literature allows us to stretch our minds and to think about our profession and where it is headed. it allows us to contribute to our ongoing professional conversation, which in turn helps define the underpinnings of our field.
