Call for Authors for new LITA Guides

Call for Authors for new LITA Guides

LITA is looking for authors for the following LITA Guides to be published by Neal-Schuman Publishing. These guides generally do very well and are marketed through ALA Publications. Authors receive 10% in royalties for their work. The turnaround time for publication is relatively short.

*         Transforming Libraries into Maker Spaces
*         Basics of Responsive Design
*         How to Get your Data out as Linked Data
*         How to use APIs for Discovery Layers

We also welcome proposals on a variety of technology topics that involve libraries.

Let me know if you are interested in authoring a guide, have any questions or would like to run an idea past me. You can email me directly at marta.deyrup@shu.edu.
