CFP: College Library Information on Policy and Practice

The ARCL/CLS CLIPP (College Library Information on Policy and Practice) Committee invites proposals for its CLIPP publication series. We welcome proposals on any topic that is relevant for college or small university libraries. The series provides college and small university libraries with examples of best practices, policies, and procedures.  

Authors of a CLIPP publication receive 10% of the royalties on the net revenues from the publication.

Each CLIPP includes three components: (1) review of the literature; (2) analysis of information gathered from surveys completed by a statistically valid sample of libraries; and (3) samples of documents (e.g., policies, procedures) pertinent to the particular CLIPP topic. The literature review, survey data, and analysis identify and describe best practices in college and small university libraries, while the documents provide examples to those libraries developing policies and analyze the survey results with specific examples of current practice.

CLIPP proposals will be accepted at any time. Proposals received by May 1st will receive notifications by May 15.
