OLA Quarterly – Spring 2014 Call for Proposals/Papers

If you have never published/considered publishing in OLA Quarterly before, this is a great opportunity! This spring (March 2014), OLA Quarterly and the OASL Interchange will be producing a joint issue focused on “Libraries across the Lifespan”–and we’d like to see contributions from academic libraries/librarians in the mix.

Call for Papers/Proposals:

Although every type of library—from public to school to academic to special—offers different collections and different services to meet the needs of our patrons at various points in their lives, all libraries have a shared mission: provide everyone with equal opportunities to access information, to explore, and to learn. This special joint issue of the OLA Quarterly and OASL’s Interchange will celebrate people, projects, and services at libraries across Oregon that are living that mission; it will offer a snapshot of how Oregon libraries are working together to serve Oregonians across their lifespan.

For this issue, the editors welcome submissions that describe and/or evaluate projects or services that have had a positive impact on the communities they serve.  Articles that focus on services aimed at a specific age group (e.g. children, teens, college students, adults, older adults) are especially encouraged, as are submissions that describe collaborations between different types of libraries (e.g. between school and public libraries or school and academic libraries, etc.). The editors hope to publish a variety of articles that provide examples of library services across the lifespan.

Submissions must be received by January 6, 2014 to be considered for the issue. Questions, article ideas/queries and submissions may be sent to either issue editor:

Isaac Gilman, gilmani@pacificu.edu | Ayn Frazee, FrazeeA@wlwv.k12.or.us
