This book brings together perspectives on sharing student scholarship and creative work, and instructive
case studies. The book incorporates the viewpoints of librarians, teaching faculty, academic staff,
community members and students themselves. We will create a dialogue around the idea of the
academic library as a laboratory for emerging scholars and creatives to practice and test their
disciplinary work; as a forum for sharing that work; and as an archive where work can be sustained and
We are particularly interested in contributions from students in other academic programs, as well as
librarians and other academics with practical experience in the area. Editors will seek proposals that
directly address one of these topics, and provide ideas and/or illustrations of practice in these areas.
Chapters will be 5000-7000 words. For more information please see https://drive.google.com/open?
