Call for Reviewers: Teaching With Primary Sources (TWPS) Case Study

(reposted from RAO listserv)

SAA colleagues,

I’m posting this to the RAO section, since this is an area of interest for section members, but also to the SAA Leaders list. Those of you who are leaders of other sections, if you feel that your membership might be interested in volunteering to review case study submissions on the topic of teaching with primary sources, please forward this to your section’s discussion list.

With the recent approval by Council of the Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy as an SAA standard (watch for publicity soon in your favorite SAA information outlets), and several additional case studies in various stages of the submission and review pipeline, I am seeking additional volunteers who would be willing to review case study submissions and provide feedback to me, as editor of this epubs series, and the author(s). This isn’t a massive time commitment, and the review process is explained in more detail here (see the section labelled “Review Process”): www2.archivists.org/publications/epubs/…

If you’re interested in volunteering to be a reviewer for this SAA case studies epubs series, or if you have questions about reviewing, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line at bill.landis@yale.edu. I’ll also be at the annual meeting in D.C. in August if anyone would like to chat about either reviewing or ideas for submitting a case study, I’d be happy to.

Cheers!

Bill

Call for proposals

Advances in Library Administration and Organization
Critical Librarianship and Library Management
Publication due 2020

Series Editor: Samantha Hines, Peninsula College
Volume Editor: David Ketchum, University of Oregon

The critical librarianship movement has shone light on many aspects of our profession and encouraged us to question why we do things the way we do them. One area underexplored in this moment, however, is library management: Are there management practices that need to be questioned or interrogated? Are there progressive practices that have not received the recognition they deserve?

ALAO seeks submissions for the “Critical Librarianship and Library Management” volume that delve beyond examples and case studies to critically examine library management.

Proposals in the following areas would be of particular interest:
Implicit bias and library management/operations
Retention and hiring for diversity and inclusion
Social justice in library leadership and management
This will be the first volume of Advances in Library Administration and Organization (ALAO) to publish in 2020.

About the Advances in Library Administration and Organization series:

ALAO offers long-form research, comprehensive discussions of theoretical developments, and in-depth accounts of evidence-based practice in library administration and organization. The series answers the questions, “How have libraries been managed, and how should they be managed?” It goes beyond a platform for the sharing of research to provide a venue for dialogue across issues in a way that traditional peer reviewed journals cannot. Through this series, practitioners glean new approaches in challenging times and collaborate on the exploration of scholarly solutions to professional quandaries.

How to submit:

We are currently seeking proposals for the 2019 volume on Critical Librarianship and Library Management. If you are interested in contributing to this volume, please send a proposal including a draft abstract of 500 words or less, author details and estimated length of final submission to Samantha Hines at shines@pencol.edu by August 31, 2018.

Submission deadlines:

Submission deadline for proposals: August 31, 2018
Notification of acceptance sent by: October 31, 2018
Submission deadline for full chapters: February 28, 2019
Comments returned to authors: April 30, 2019
Submission deadline for chapter revisions: June 15, 2019

It takes approximately 20 minutes (depending on how much you wish to write) and is open until the 31st July 2018. This survey is anonymous and your answers will be handled securely in line with my university’s research data management policy.

I would also be most grateful if you could forward this message to your colleagues and students.
