CFP: Library and Information Research Issue on Workplace libraries

CFP: Library and Information Research Issue on Workplace libraries

The Editors of Library and Information Research invite papers from practitioners, consultants and academic researchers that address the unique joys and challenges of workplace libraries. We welcome papers on:
* Use of information in the workplace
* Marketing the workplace library and demonstrating value to the organisation
* Web 2.0 in the workplace
* User education and training in the workplace
* Professional development for the workplace librarian
* Regulatory, legal and policy implications for workplace libraries
* Digital libraries in the workplace
This list is not exhaustive. The journal’s focus is on linking research and practice so an emphasis on research with a practical application is especially welcome. We publish papers from both experienced and new researchers. Authors may choose whether their paper is sent for peer review and considered for publication in the refereed section of the journal, or whether they wish it to be considered for publication as a non-peer-reviewed research paper. Unrefereed papers will still be subject to editorial review.

If you have any queries about the suitability of your paper please feel free to contact Miggie Pickton, the lead editor for this issue of Library and Information Research.
