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

_The Bottom Line:  Managing Library Finances_ will be publishing a 
special issue(s) on the effect of the current global economic recession 
on libraries.  The editor is looking for articles from all types of 
libraries:  public, academic, private, special, corporate, etc.  
Articles that deal with managing layoffs, permanent cuts to staffing and 
collections, innovative collaborative and cooperative arrangements 
between and among libraries and/or other organizations because of budget 
cuts(including shared print, cataloging, collection building, etc.), and 
organizational change and/or strategic planning in a time of dramatic 
budget cuts are especially encouraged.  Articles can be of any length, 
and figures and screen shots are encouraged.

If you are interested in contributing, please send the editor your name, 
a short proposal of the topic, and a tentative title for the article.  
Deadline for proposals is March 1, 2009.  Articles would be due to the 
editor by July 1, 2009.  Any questions can be directed to the editor.  
Thank you.
