Call for Papers – Theme Issue on Library Services to Distance Learners

“The Urban Library Journal (ULJ), a publication of the Library Association of the City University of New York and a peer-reviewed, open access journal, welcomes article proposals for a special themed issue on library services to distance learners.

The editors invite proposals for articles reflecting original research, case studies, literature reviews and theoretical considerations of relevant topics.  Topics may include, but not be limited to:
•     Urban distance learners: serving users when distance learning involves very little physical distance
•     Welcoming outside distance learning students from other institutions
•     Public library support of college students in distance learning programs
•     Urban Students/Rural Students, Urban Studies/Rural Studies – library support when the collection is not built for the discipline
•     Campus support for libraries serving distant learners
•     International students working from a distance and what they need from libraries
•     Inter-library relations for supporting distance learning students
All proposals should be submitted for consideration by November 14, 2011.  Send proposals to the editors listed below. 

Final articles should be submitted for peer review by January 16, 2012.  Publication is planned for spring 2012.
