Please excuse any duplication.  Please forward to other interested 
colleagues and listservs.

This is a call for book chapters for a new book titled _More...  
Innovative Redesign and Reorganization of Library Technical Services_.  
This book will be a companion book to the already published _Innovative 
Redesign and Reorganization of Library Technical Services:  Paths for 
the Future and Case Studies_ (Libraries Unlimited, 2004).  The editor is 
looking for interesting and provocative redesigns and reorganizations of 
library technical services, including reengineering of technical 
services staff for digitization and digital projects, training and new 
directions in non-MARC metadata projects and collaborations, redesigns 
and new foci for the presentation and searching of OPACs, reorganization 
of space and personnel in new and strategic directions, and combining 
staff functions and departments for greater efficiency and productivity, 
as examples.  Case studies detailing how library organizations are 
flattening hierarchies, and combining both technical and public services 
in new and innovative ways are also encouraged.  The editor is also 
interested in library organizations that are incorporating new types of 
leadership and motivational initiatives that are often seen in the 
business and corporate communities, such as ideas presented in books 
such as _Primal Leadership_.  Opinion chapters on the future of 
technical services librarianship, or statistical information related to 
this area, are invited to submit a proposal as well.

Anyone interested in writing a chapter for this book should send a short 
proposal detailing what the chapter will be about, with title and 
authors, to the editor, by March 30, 2007.  Final chapter drafts will be 
due to the editor by September 1, 2007.  Please feel free to contact the 
editor with any questions.  Thank you.
