Call for Nominations: Peer Review Panel for the ALA Research Series. Due April 29

CHICAGO — The ALA Office for Research & Statistics invites nominations for a peer review panel for the ALA Research Series.
The ALA Research Series expands the knowledge base of library research by publishing quantitative and/or qualitative research and analysis that addresses topics important to libraries, librarians and education in the profession–accessible, useful, practical, sustainable research.
 The series is distinguished by:

  • It is published annually, monographs and edited volumes.
The ALA Research Series is a peer reviewed publication with an editorial panel comprised of experienced library researchers and practitioners.  The review panel has membership representing a broad array of expertise and perspectives in library research topics. 
Two positions will be filled through this nomination process. Each reviewer serves a three-year term. Terms begin summer 2011.
