Call for Proposals: Journal of Library Innovation.

The Editors of Journal of Library Innovation (JOLI) are accepting submissions of research articles and articles about innovative practices in libraries on an ongoing basis. Information about the focus and scope of JOLI, along with the first issue, can be found at the journal's website:  http://www.libraryinnovation.org

If you have tried out a new program, changed a work flow, connected with patrons in a way different from the way you have done so in the past, please consider sharing your experience by writing about it. If you aren't sure if it was innovative, consider the following:

•What was eye-opening?

•What was unexpected?

•What were the benefits?

•What failed?

•What risk did you take in trying something innovative?

•You may have tried something done by many other libraries already, but your results are different from those documented in library literature.

•You have tried something never done in a library setting before.

Thank you for your interest in the Journal of Library Innovation.  Please share this email with colleagues who might be interested as well.

If you have any questions, please contact Pamela Jones, Managing Editor, at pjones@medaille.edu

Journal of Library Innovation is a publication of the Western New York Library Resources Council, Buffalo, NY. http://www.wnylrc.org
