Call for Chapters - Engaging Undergraduates in Primary Source Research (Rowman & Littlefield's Innovation in Information Literacy series)

Call for Chapters

Lijuan Xu is  soliciting chapter proposals for a book entitled Engaging Undergraduates in Primary Source Research. Part of Rowman & Littlefield’s Innovations in Information Literacy series, this book seeks to present success stories of how faculty and librarians can create and facilitate engaging and productive learning experiences with primary sources in the undergraduate classrooms. The co-authored chapters (5,000 words) by librarians and their faculty partners will showcase the work of librarians from various areas of library operations and their faculty collaborators in different disciplines, including the sciences and social sciences.

Sample topics include:
  • Constructing settler colonialism from the indigenous perspectives
  • Understanding human-and-nature dynamics through local landscapes
  • Exploring the legacy of the Black Arts Movement through music
  • Mapping and tracing the globalization of commodities
Each case study should center on how students learn and practice information literacy competencies through their engagement with primary sources. By focusing on competencies that are applicable and transferrable across disciplinary boundaries, the case studies and the featured activities and assignments should be easily adopted by faculty and librarians to enhance or transform their primary source-related teaching practices.

Chapter structure:

  • Why the faculty member teaches with primary sources
  • The institutional context
  • How the faculty-librarian collaboration came about
  • What the collaboration involves: conversations, assignments and activities, library sessions and class discussions, etc. - Include guidelines—the ACRL Information Literacy Framework, the Primary Source Literacy guidelines, and discipline-specific guidelines—if they have informed your work.
  • Outcomes and assessment
  • Reflection
  • Conclusion


  • 600-800 word chapter proposal and tentative title—November 1, 2019
  • Notification of proposal acceptance—early January, 2020

CFP: Academic Libraries and the Costs of Higher Education (Special Issue of Reference Services Review)

CFP: Academic Libraries and the Costs of Higher Education

Reference Services Review seeks journal article contributions for a special issue that will explore how academic libraries are thinking about, engaging with, and addressing affordability issues on their campuses. This issue will be focused on the micro-level costs faced by our students, such as textbooks or course materials, rather than the macro-level economic challenges in higher education, such as student loans, interest rates, or tuition rates. The issue will be published in August, 2020 (Volume 48, issue 3).

The guest editors are encouraging topics that fall in the broader categories of social justice, the student experience, library administrative decisions or priorities, open education initiatives, and strategic partnerships. Some examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Definitions of affordability in specific contexts, such as technical colleges, liberal arts universities, or large research institutions, and discussions on how those definitions are created.
  • Sustainability of affordability initiatives.
  • Affordability initiatives and implications for student privacy.
  • Student perspectives, involvement, and/or partnerships with affordability initiatives.
  • Libraries tackling the costs of course materials, including traditional texts, electronic textbooks, non-book supplementary materials, and more.
  • Libraries supporting and/or developing open education initiatives on campus.
  • Library collaborations with the university, consortia, and other institutions of higher education.
  • Library collaborations with publishers and other organizations that are not institutions of higher education.
  • Navigating and researching institutional culture and encouraging participation in affordability initiatives.

The journal welcomes conceptual papers, case studies, literature review, and research papers about issues and trends that address specific opportunities or challenges related to academic libraries and the cost of getting an education. For complete author guidelines, please consult the journal’s website ( Potential contributors are encouraged to be creative in developing topics. Abstracts will be evaluated for submission using a rubric, which is included in this CFP.

Call for Chapters: Implementing Excellence in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Handbook for Academic Libraries

This deadline has been extended to September 9.  The editors are especially
interested in submissions relating to assessment of Diversity, Equity and
Inclusion, either as it stands in a particular institution or assessment of
DEI efforts; leveraging institutional politics, and working with the community
outside of our institutions.

Call for Chapter Proposals
Implementing Excellence in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Handbook for Academic Libraries

Chapter proposals are requested for an edited volume titled Implementing Excellence in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Handbook for Academic Libraries, to be published by the Association of College and Research Libraries. Head Editors are Brian Lym (Hunter College) and Corliss Lee (University of California, Berkeley), and Co-Editors are Tatiana Bryant (Adelphi University), Jonathan Cain (University of Oregon), and Kenneth Schlesinger (Lehman College).

We are seeking case studies, qualitative research studies, quantitative research studies, survey research studies, and other research-based solutions that can be implemented in today’s libraries. A more detailed outline appears below.

Proposals, including a 600-800 word abstract, should be submitted by September 9, 2019. Notification of acceptance will occur by the end of September 2019. Selected authors should expect to submit a full draft of their article no later than January 14, 2020.

Call for Proposals:

Book Outline

The well-documented lack of diversity in the academic library workforce remains problematic, especially given growing expectations that the overall academic workforce be more representative of the increasingly diverse student bodies at our colleges and universities. That the lack of diversity is especially notable among the professional ranks (librarians, library leadership, and administrators) is indicative of inequity of opportunities for people of color and “minoritized” ethnic groups.

Further, remediation of racial and ethnic diversity in the academic library workplace raises broader diversity issues, including individuals with identities outside the gender binary and other individuals who face discrimination due to their sexual orientation, disabilities, religious affiliation, military status, age, or other identities.

Emerging efforts to diversify the academic library workplace are pointedly raising issues of inclusion in libraries where demographic homogeneity has historically prevailed. With Implementing  excellence in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, we hope to capture emerging research and practice that
demonstrate ways academic libraries and librarians can work with and within their institutions to create a more equitable and representative workforce.

Part 1: Leveraging and Deploying Systemic and Bureaucratic/Structural Solutions
Since colleges and universities are hierarchical and complex systems with centralized and bureaucratic controls that can effect or impede transformative change, academic library leaders need to leverage and deploy formal structures and administrative resources to achieve DEI excellence.

Themes (Part 1):

  • Recruitment and Hiring
  • Retention and Advancement
  • Professional Development and Support
  • Assessment: Tracking DEI Progress

Part 2: Leveraging Collegial Networks, Politics, and Symbols:
Strengthening and Deepening Change for DEI Excellence; Acknowledging and deploying collegial networks, leveraging informal and formal political power, and symbolic resources to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion excellence in academic libraries.

Themes (Part 2):

  • Navigating Collegial Networks and Normative Expectations
  • Leveraging the Politics of Organizational Behavior (formal and informal power)
  • Reinforcing the Message: Deploying Change Through Deployment of Symbolic Activities

CFP: Library Technology: Innovating Technologies, Services and Practices - Special Issue of College & Undergraduate Libraries


Technology is ubiquitous and ever evolving in academic libraries ranging from the technology integrated in the physical library space to online presences that connect users to library resources. Keeping up with the constant development to library technology services and practices can be a challenge for any library—there could be financial, space, or staffing constraints in addition to other potential detractors. However, there are also ample opportunities to excel in specific areas of library technology in order to better serve our library users in their research and knowledge creation journey. Academic libraries can share their innovative implementation and management of technologies or technology related services and practices. These conversations drive the future of library technology and technology practices. It all starts with a spark of inspiration.

College & Undergraduate Libraries, a peer-reviewed journal published by Taylor & Francis, invites proposals for a special issue focusing on innovative technologies, technology services and practices in academic libraries. Library technology is broadly defined to be inclusive of the various types of technologies academic libraries support. Potential submissions include research studies, case studies, best practices, or position papers involving:

• Immersive research or programs such as augmented reality or virtual reality
• Makerspaces or creation studios
• Enhancing library space with technology
• Sustainability and library technology
• Assessing library technology services using UX practices
• Evaluating library technology department workflows or functionality
• Securing library technology
• Privacy and ethics with library technology or library technology services
• Internet of Things in an academic library
• Designing academic library websites or technology services
• Using analytics to improve a library service or online presence
• Improving access to library resources via discovery services or library management systems
• Exploring alternative means of authentication or improving current authentication systems
• Incorporating machine learning or library data projects
• Adding technology into library instruction or using innovative technology to teach remote learners
• Teaching technology in an academic library
• Intentionally designing learning spaces with technology
• Using Git or other code repositories for library technology management
• Strategic planning of technology services
• Accessibility of library technologies
• Increasing inclusion using technology
• Innovative or inspiring library technology projects/programs
• Technology trends outside the library we should be watching

Submissions may address opportunities, challenges, and criticism in any of these areas. Topics not listed in these themes may also be considered.

This special issue is set to be published in June 2020.
