Call for Submissions for Academic BRASS Newsletter

Submit a brief article to Academic BRASS! It's a great way to share your professional knowledge with other business librarians and get a publishing credit.

Please submit your idea for an article to Charles Allan (ca20@txstate), Chair of the Business Reference in Academic Libraries Committee by March 1, 2015

Current issue here:

Potential topics include:

  • Outreach, student relations, and instruction.
  • Successful research or program articles regarding business librarianship
  • Strategy articles on approaches to research assistance and explanations of research tools, especially electronic resources.
  • Review articles on books, electronic resources or web sites.

All articles should be practical and useful. Our contributors use a journalistic, sometimes humorous tone.

Occasionally, feature articles can extend to 1000 words or more, but a more typical length is 500-800 words. Authors should be guided by what they have to say rather than an arbitrary word length.

All articles are subject to editing for length, style, and content.

The newsletter follows the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition for all matters of style and citation. Authors whose articles include references to print or internet resources are urged to observe the conventions set forth in that book and on the APA web site (
