CLIPP Call for Proposals (ACRL College Libraries Section (CLS))

CLIPP Call for Proposals (ACRL College Libraries Section (CLS))
The ACRL College Libraries Section (CLS) is seeking proposals for CLIPP: College Library Information on Policy and Practice, a reconceptualization of ACRL's CLIPNotes publication series. Any librarian at a college or small university can submit a publication proposal to the CLIPP committee. Any trend or subject of interest to college and small university libraries is a potential topic. Proposal ideas could include:
  • The changing nature of collections (e-books, remote storage, weeding policies, etc.)
  • Mobile access
  • Grant writing
  • Staff development
  • The place of the library in campus organizational structures 
For a full description of the submission and publication process, visit the CLIPP website. To be considered for the inaugural volume of the new CLIPP series, proposals must be received by April 30, 2012, but proposals will be accepted continually for future volumes. Proposals can be emailed directly to the CLIPP Chair, Erin Smith at
