Collaborative Librarianship: Call for Papers from Consortia and Coops

Collaborative Librarianship: Call for Papers

Vol. 2, no. 4 (Fall, 2010) issue of Collaborative Librarianship will focus on the role consortia play in library collaboration. Consortia and cooperatives are crossing new thresholds in cooperative purchases, integrated library systems, institutional repositories, collection development plans and delivery services. Articles are sought related to any of these topics or other consortial innovations.  Please have submissions made on CL’s website by September 15th, 2010.  The next issue of CL, Vol. 2, no. 3 (Summer, 2010), will be published in September.

 The journal also welcomes articles, reports, reviews, and news items that pertain to any aspect of the nature, methodology, promotion, practice and concerns related to library collaboration.  CL also welcomes reader comments and responses to items published in the journal.

 Scholarly articles will undergo peer review. Articles, reports and other items not peer-reviewed may be published in other sections of the journal.  Author submissions should be made through the journal’s web site.  All inquiries about submissions could be made by contacting Ivan Gaetz, or by contacting any of the section editors listed on the journal’s website.

 Collaborative Librarianship – Permanent Archive

To ensue all articles published by the journal will have a permanent URL, Collaborative Librarianship’s archive is planned for the Alliance Digital Repository (ADR).  In the fluid and sometimes fleeting world of “born-digital,” archiving and permanent access remains a question to which the ADR is our response.
