The International Conference on Performance Measurement in Libraries (LibPMC) is held every two years. In between, the conference’s Community Building Team conducts outreach activities to those working in all libraries. On February 28th, we are offering a free webinar discussing

The webinar panel includes four editors of peer-reviewed journals representing publications in four countries (Canada, Nigeria, Poland, and United States). Panelist bios are provided below with links to their respective journals on the attached flyer. While the webinar is focused on peer reviewing for library journals, the principles and discussion should benefit anyone interested in becoming a peer reviewer.
