ALA Midwinter Reports for Library Hi-Tech News

ALA Midwinter Reports for Library Hi-Tech News

Here is another publishing opportunity to cover meetings and discussion groups that you are attending at the ALA Midwinter Meeting beginning at the end of this week in Philadelphia.

Library Hi-Tech News (LHTN) always has a conference compilation and we seek input from a variety of librarians about anything having to do with technology applications in all kinds of libraries. There are many sessions sponsored by both LITA and other Divisions scheduled at this conference that would interest our readers both in North America and abroad about new products, methods, implementations, ideas, or anything else you glean and we hope that you will choose to cover what is of greatest interest to you and submit to us by February 19. It would be very helpful to know whether we can expect a submission from you. Submissions from multiple contributors for the same session or content will be streamed and included, as there are often different viewpoints that are of interest to us.

Contributions should be significant in that they should not only be descriptive but evaluative, critical, comparative and indicate the timeliness, relevance and importance it has to Library IT, as well as include what you found most interesting or disappointing and what kind of experience you have with this topic or product, etc.

Please send submissions as an attachment in MS Word to Julia Gelfand (jgelfand@uci.edu.) by Feb 19 to be included in the April 2007 issue.

LHTN is both a print and online publication, on the Emerald database.

Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to your submission.

Julia Gelfand
