CFP: CLIPP Publication Series (ACRL/CLS CLIPP - College Library Information on Policy and Practice)

The ACRL/CLS CLIPP (College Library Information on Policy and Practice) Committee invites you to submit a preliminary proposal for its CLIPP publication series. We welcome proposals on any topic that is relevant for small and mid-sized academic libraries. The CLIPP series allows library staff to share information on practices and procedures they have implemented to address common issues or concerns. Each CLIPP follows a set structure of three parts (literature review, survey results, and sample documents), and should both describe library best practices and provide useful, specific examples that libraries can refer to when developing similar policies and procedures of their own.

Authors of a CLIPP publication are aided throughout by the CLIPP Committee and an assigned editor. CLIPP authors receive 10% of the royalties on the net revenues from their publication. For your reference, please find author instructions and more information about the CLIPP program at

CLIPP proposals are accepted throughout the year. The next Preliminary Proposal Deadline is October 6, 2017. The CLIPP Committee will send out notifications regarding this round of submissions by October 23, 2017.
