CFP: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Theological Libraries and Librarianship – Theological Librarianship (TL) Journal

This call does not specifically mention archives, but is an opportunity for anyone interested in the topic as it relates to theology.

___________________________

CFP: Theological Librarianship’s Diversity Forum

In light of recent events in the country and in recognition of long-standing inequities in the library profession, Theological Librarianship (TL) is planning to devote the Spring 2021 issue to a forum addressing questions of diversity, equity, and inclusion in theological libraries and librarianship. Such questions take different forms in different libraries and even in different theological contexts, and we expect the forum to reflect some of these differences as well as some common themes across the landscape of theological librarianship. The TL forum will be an opportunity to share your experiences with these questions at your institution in a brief (750-1500 word) statement or reflection.

Since diversity, equity, and inclusion (themselves often fraught terms) evoke a variety of concerns and realties touching race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, class, disability, religious and ethnic identity, etc., TL is looking for submissions that address this variety in critical and constructive ways, with a special focus on the intersectional nature of differing religious commitments and theological perspectives as they engage with other forms of diversity.

Theological Librarianship (https://serials.atla.com/theolib) is an open access journal publishing peer reviewed articles, as well as essays and reviews, on subjects at the intersection of librarianship and religious and theological studies that potentially impact libraries.

The deadline for submissions to the Spring 2021 forum is January 3, 2021. Submissions must be made at https://serials.atla.com/theolib/about/submissions. Please review the submission guidelines carefully. You will need to login to create your submission. If you have not previously created an account, you will need to register first before a submission can be completed. In the submission form, select “Special Forum” under the Section drop-down.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our editorial team at editors-tl@atla.com.

Thank you,

Call for Chapter Proposals: Innovation and Experiential Learning in Academic Libraries Meeting the Needs of 21st Century Students

This call does not specifically mention archives, but is potentially related to academic archivists.

Innovation and Experiential Learning in Academic Libraries
Meeting the Needs of 21st Century Students

Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group
Series: Innovations in Information Literacy
Editors: Sarah Nagle and Elias Tzoc

As technology advances and the skills required for the future workforce continue to change rapidly, academic libraries have begun to expand the definition of information literacy and the type of library services they provide to better prepare students for the constantly-developing world they will face upon graduation. More than teaching the newest technologies, information literacy is expanding to help students develop enduring skills such as critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, communication, teamwork, and more. Innovation and Experiential Learning in Academic Libraries: Meeting the Needs of 21st Century Students addresses the multitude of ways that academic librarians are collaborating with faculty and helping students develop these enduring skills by developing and integrating active and experiential learning approaches into teaching activities.

We plan to organize 8-10 chapters (from a multidisciplinary group of authors) into three main sections:

  • Section I – Innovation and Leadership: in times of unprecedented changes and transformations, library leaders must plan, advocate and implement innovative services that support effective learning and teaching environments for all disciplines.

  • Section II – Examples and Case Studies: academic librarianship is a field of practice where librarians and information professionals are actively involved in creating programs and services that meet the dynamic and ever-changing needs of students and faculty.

  • Section III – Future Literacy Developments: as the world continues to change, because of new technologies or global crisis, the academic library community must also continue to change/create innovative literacy services that will contribute to student success.

Chapters will be 15-20 pages (5,000 – 7,000 words and will include 1-2 figures, tables, or images) each.

Chapter proposal topics may include, but are not limited to:
Section I: Innovation and Leadership

  • Leading teams focused on new/innovative instructional techniques and technologies

  • Campus-library partnerships for innovative initiatives

  • Examples and best practices for working with faculty to incorporate new literacies/experiential learning into curricula

  • Challenging the status quo at your institution

  • Championing innovative efforts

Section II: Examples and Case Studies of Literacy efforts in

  • Digital humanities

  • Data literacy

  • Digital scholarship

  • Active/experiential learning in information literacy

  • Maker/creation literacy

  • Design thinking/entrepreneurial thinking

Section III: Future Literacy Developments

  • Emerging Literacy Services in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

  • Information Literacy and Academic Library Innovation in a Post-COVID World

We seek chapter proposals that can provide crucial guidance for administrators and information literacy practitioners on implementing various new and innovative literacies into their instruction.

Chapter submissions deadline: November 15th, 2020
Decision on chapters proposals: December 15th, 2020
Full chapters deadline: May 15th, 2021

CFP: Libraries: Culture, History, and Society issue on Black women librarians

In Spring 2022, the Library History Round Table will devote volume 6, number 1 of Libraries: Culture, History, and Society, and significant space in LHRT News and Notes, to scholarship, book reviews, and blog posts on Black women librarians. This issue will be guest-edited by Dr. Nicole A. Cooke, the Augusta Baker Endowed Chair and Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina.

Dr. Cooke will accept proposals for scholarly articles and select 4-6 research studies for publication in LCHS. The publication is particularly interested in material on Black women librarians who have not yet been covered adequately by the scholarly or professional literature. Proposals concerning other pathbreaking librarians are also welcomed.

To submit a proposal, please contact Dr. Cooke via this signup form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfjEqFwlzqJ77p4ESJ5TLTQxJ84RVV0mogsLCXdKAxEukW_WQ/viewform) by Monday, November 16, 2020.  The full CFP can be found at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lFFga_cdu1stWAnnF0gk8_KwjYe2MfUd/view?fbclid=IwAR21Le4epLFdHhbfUQ-qD2fnCKtxEeMq2GnXLqZRWoL4e9xluWRzON5NIg4.

Call for proposals for Innovation Column for 2021: Journal of New Librarianship

You are invited to submit a proposal for the Journal of New Librarianship’s On Innovation in Libraries column.

Innovations in a Time of Crisis and Complexity

Rogers (2003) defined innovation as an “idea, practice, or object that is perceived as new by an individual or other unit of adoption” (p. 12). Innovations may take place as social problems gain a position of high priority in response to heightened recognition of problems or needs (Rogers, 2003). As the Journal of New Librarianship completes its transition to OJS at CU Boulder, we are issuing a call for proposals for the column, On Innovation in Libraries. The theme for this cycle of column publications will explore the topic of library innovations in a time of crisis and complexity during which we have seen exacerbation of existing inequalities (Campbell, 2020). We invite you to share what this has looked like in your Library’s praxis.

Completed columns will be 1,500 – 3,000 words. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals of 200-500 words on or before Monday, September 21, 2020. Authors will be notified by Wednesday, October 21, 2020 regarding the status of their proposals and to discuss a timeline for column submission, editorial review, and publication in early 2021 on our new OJS platform.

Please submit column proposals via this web form.
