This call for papers is open to any and all librarians and library staff
of GoLocal sites functional during any time during the entire run of
NLM’s GoLocal initiative. The editors are seeking contributions from
writers who want to convey the “Lessons Learned” in their libraries and
their institutions through their GoLocal experience. Possible themes
include, but are not limited to:

• Community analysis
• Working with special populations
• Evaluation
• Geographic and linguistic challenges
• Project management
• Promotion and outreach
• Website management
• Collaboration within and outside the library

What worked well? What would you do differently if you did it again?
What aspects of your GoLocal experience would you like to pass on to
other librarians and community partners interested in consumer health
information and services?

Deadline: By September 1, 2010, send an email of intent, indicating your
interest in submission, to Catherine Arnott Smith at
