Call for Chapters: Changing Roles, Changing Times: Essays on Academic and Public Librarians’ Responsibilities in an Era of Change

Call for Book Chapters: Academic and Public Libraries

I am seeking chapter proposals for a new edited collection tentatively titled “Changing Roles, Changing Times: Essays on Academic and Public Librarians’ Responsibilities in an Era of Change”, to be published by McFarland & Company.

The monograph’s purpose is to examine the impact of technology on librarians’ position duties and responsibilities.  This evolution is leading to the creation of new positions and the restructuring of old positions in order to meet the increasing demands technology is placing on the profession.  The impact of technology is significantly revising the look of librarianship in the academic and public spheres.  Librarians from all levels are impacted from the newly-hired librarian to the seasoned, veteran manager.

This work seeks to capture the experiences, thoughts, and opinions of librarians whose new roles are transforming their working relationships with faculty and students and related communities. Librarians working in academic and public libraries have valuable experiences to share with the library community. The entire library community will benefit from reading and applying the experiences and knowledge shared by a group of library leaders.

Please submit a proposal of 250-500 words for consideration.

Topics may include, but not limited to:

Digital Services:

  • Big Data Analytics
  • Collaborations with constituents such as students and local communities
  • Data Curation and Preservation
  • Data Management (e.g. data management plans)
  • Data Science
  • Data Visualization
  • Digital Humanities
  • Discovery search services
  • Social Media
  • Virtual Reality

“Open” Activities:

  • Creative Commons Licensing
  • Institutional Repositories
  • Intellectual Property (patents, trademarks, copyright)
  • Open Access (e.g., monographs, journals, open educational resources)
  • Scholarly Communications

By February 8, 2019, please email your chapter proposals to:

Information & Culture: New Book Reviews

Making IT Work: A History of the Computer Services Industry by Jeffrey R. Yost
Reviewed by Sarah A. Bell

The computer services industry has worldwide annual revenues of nearly a trillion dollars and employs millions of workers, but is often overshadowed by the hardware and software products industries. In this book, Jeffrey Yost shows how computer services, from consulting and programming to data analytics and cloud computing, have played a crucial role in shaping information technology—in making IT work… (MIT Press)

Weaving the Dark Web: Legitimacy on Freenet, Tor, and I2P, by Robert Gehl
Reviewed by Elinor Carmi

The term “Dark Web” conjures up drug markets, unregulated gun sales, stolen credit cards. But, as Robert Gehl points out in Weaving the Dark Web, for each of these illegitimate uses, there are other, legitimate ones: the New York Times‘s anonymous whistleblowing system, for example, and the use of encryption by political dissidents. Defining the Dark Web straightforwardly as websites that can be accessed only with special routing software, and noting the frequent use of “legitimate” and its variations by users, journalists, and law enforcement to describe Dark Web practices (judging them “legit” or “sh!t”), Gehl uses the concept of legitimacy as a window into the Dark Web. He does so by examining the history of three Dark Web systems: Freenet, Tor, and I2P… (MIT Press)

My Life as a Spy: Investigations in a Secret Police File by Katherine Verdery
Reviewed by Kalpana Shankar

As Katherine Verdery observes, “There’s nothing like reading your secret police file to make you wonder who you really are.” In 1973 Verdery began her doctoral fieldwork in the Transylvanian region of Romania, ruled at the time by communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. She returned several times over the next twenty-five years, during which time the secret police—the Securitate—compiled a massive surveillance file on her. Reading through its 2,781 pages, she learned that she was “actually” a spy, a CIA agent, a Hungarian agitator, and a friend of dissidents: in short, an enemy of Romania. (Duke University Press)
