This page uses the standard blog layout: posts in reverse chronological order of publication date with this “sticky post” at the top to explain how things work. I’ve also created a list of good places to start for those unfamiliar with my approach.
The things I write are often not time sensitive, except in the sense that they related to a particular point in the cycle of the academic year. I decided to rename the blog “The Library” (JoVanEvery.ca/library). In keeping with the idea of a Library, this page is like the “Recent Acquisitions” shelf in your local library, highlighting things that have been added to the collection.
If you are new here and want to learn more about how I approach academic work, academic careers, and so on, the best point of entry is the library homepage. I’ve gathered together a few posts on key topics on that page, with the category indicated so you can find other similar things more easily.
If you are looking for something specific, the search box in the navigation bar enables you to search the site by keyword.
Posts are added irregularly.
I usually send new materials to either Studio members or newsletter subscribers first. Updated versions eventually end up here, with a note acknowledging the previous version. I also periodically update older posts. If I do not change the original publication date, the date of the most recent edit will be indicated at the bottom of the post. If I do republish, the date of original publication will be indicated at the bottom of the post.
In 2016 I started collating, revising, and updating some of the material first published in the Library to create and publish Short Guides. These short books on key topics make it easier to get an overview of my approach to particular areas of your academic life. They can be ordered as eBooks or paperbacks wherever you buy your books.
Substantially edited on 4 May 2020 when I changed the link in the navigation bar to come here first.
