New Journal: Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication

A joint publishing partnership between the libraries at Pacific University (OR) and California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (CA) has announced a new open access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to library-led scholarly communication initiatives, online publishing and digital projects.

The Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication will provide a focused forum for library practitioners to share ideas, strategies, research and pragmatic explorations of library-led initiatives related to such areas as institutional repository and digital collection management, library publishing/hosting services and authors’ rights advocacy efforts.  As technology, scholarly communication, the economics of publishing, and the roles of libraries all continue to evolve, the work shared in JLSC will inform practices that strengthen librarianship.

Marisa Ramirez (Cal Poly) and Isaac Gilman (Pacific University) will co-edit the journal in collaboration with an editorial board composed of experienced and respected library practitioners.  Founding board members include: Allyson Mower (University of Utah), Amy Buckland (McGill University), Ann Lally (University of Washington), JQ Johnson (University of Oregon), Katherine Johnson (California Institute of Technology), Lisa Schiff (California Digital Library), Michael Boock (Oregon State University), Pamela Bluh (University of Maryland, School of Law), Paul Royster (University of Nebraska), Rebecca Kennison (Columbia University), Sarah Shreeves (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Shawn Martin (University of Pennsylvania), Susan Wells Parham (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Terry Owen (University of Maryland).

Just as the core library areas of resource sharing, collection management, cataloging/metadata, instruction and public services have journals dedicated to best practices, there is a need for this new core area of library services to be specifically represented in the literature.  The Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication will meet that need – providing a shared intellectual space for scholarly communication librarians, institutional repository managers, digital archivists, digital data managers and related professionals.  

The first issue is planned for early 2012, with rolling publication of quarterly issues thereafter.  All content will be open access upon publication and licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license.

Call for Proposals: The Past, Present, and Future of the Book. Due September 30

Call for Papers and Workshops:
The Past, Present, and Future of the Book

The explosion of new digital book technologies – smart phones, tablets, print-to-order self-publishing sites, and so forth – has paradoxically energized more traditional studies of the book. The academic field tends to be divided into Book History (English and History), Book Arts (Art and English), Digital Books (Computer Science, Business, Sociology), and Cognition and Reading (Psychology, Education, Library Studies): each of these areas of interest is brimming with new scholarship as well as public interest.
In practice, the subfields overlap, and exciting things are happening at the intersections. To foreground these intersections and explore the pedagogical potential of Book Studies and Book Art, we invite paper and poster presentations, round-table discussions, and book-art workshops from scholars, artists, and librarians interested in the past, present, and future of the book. Proposals by collaborative student-faculty teams or by faculty from different disciplines are especially welcome.

All sessions will be 90 minutes in length; paper sessions in particular will include three twenty minute papers and a discussion period.
Abstracts are not to exceed 400 words. Paper and round-table proposals must specify special equipment needs. Workshop proposals must clearly identify facilities and materials needed; they must also include an estimate of supply costs per participant.
All proposals must be submitted through the website by September 30, 2011. A preliminary program will be announced in mid October, when registration will open. If you have any questions about appropriateness of materials and proposals, please contact us (mmouton@cornellcollege.edu).
Registration is free for ACM faculty, staff, and students. Lodging, meals, and materials for participants will be covered by a grant. Travel subsidies are available for ACM participants. For participants not affiliated with the ACM, the registration fee of $60 will cover meals and all materials.

Call for Proposals: Chapters for "Workplace Culture in Academic Libraries." Due August 1

This is a call for proposals for chapters for an upcoming book titled “Workplace Culture in Academic Libraries:  The Early Twenty-First Century.”  This book will be edited by Kelly Blessinger and Dr. Paul Hrycaj of Louisiana State University and published by Chandos Press. 

This book will focus on various aspects of workplace culture in academic libraries from the practitioners’ viewpoint, as opposed to that of the theoretician.  Basic questions the book will be concerned with: What conditions contribute to an excellent academic library work environment?  What helps to make a particular academic library a great place to work?  Articles should focus on actual programs while placing the discussion in a scholarly context.  Each article should minimally have an introduction, literature review, and conclusion.  More research-based articles should also include a problem statement, methodology, and results.  Articles included would be related to the physical environment, the recruitment and hiring process, diversity, retention of quality staff, staff morale, interaction between departments, communication/information sharing, handling of complaints, and management styles conducive to healthy workplaces.   It will be preferable for authors to be current academic librarians, though articles from those who are not current practitioners will be acceptable as long as they are based on previous experience as a practitioner.  
See the reverse side for more information on the potential topics in this book. 
To submit a proposal, please submit the following by August 1, 2011 to Kelly Blessinger at kblessi@lsu.edu:
1)      A one to two paragraph summary of your idea for a chapter
2)      A current curriculum vitae
3)      Citations to current works or a writing sample

Any additional questions can be directed to either editor:
