Are you interested in sharing your research and scholarship through traditional or social media? Translating your expert knowledge and complex research into a format that can inform a broad audience can be challenging. To assist you with getting your message out to the public, the Scholarly Communication Committee is pleased to announce a new publication on the Library's website, Communicating through the Media. Our new guide includes the following sections:

  • Introduction (benefits and challenges of working with media and pros and cons of various media options)
  • Op-Eds (tips on writing and submitting an article)
  • Interviews (tips for television, radio, and print)
  • Blogs (practical and technical tips on blogging)
  • Twitter (practical and technical tips on using Twitter)
  • Podcasts (practical and technical tips on podcasting)
  • Media and Academic Promotion (links to reports and articles discussing incentives for faculty engaging in public discourse)
