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.
