Call for Submissions: ILA Reporter and ILA Connector

(via the Illinois Library Association)

We are accepting submissions for the ILA Reporter and the ILA Connector.

For the ILA Reporter, we are seeking the following types of pieces.

  • articles that explore an issue, rather than promoting a particular initiative or program, with examples from more than one library or type of library
  • writing that considers a “how to think about . . .” approach rather than “how to do . . .”
  • submissions from all geographic areas of the state
  • submissions that relate to ILA’s strategic goal area of a culture of diversity and inclusion, both in the profession and the association.

For the ILA Connecter blog, we are seeking blog topics or themes on (but are not limited to) conferences and events, historical essays pertaining to the library world, book or other material challenges, programming ideas, information for job seekers, local author interviews, local library staff or trustee interviews, celebration days or weeks, library instruction, social media, mentorship, marketing, networking, MLIS courses/programs, professional or otherwise pertinent book reviews, privacy & censorship,  work/life balance, and more.

Submission guidelines for the ILA Reporter are available here, and for the ILA Connectorhere, . If you have any questions regarding submissions for either publication, please contact Kendall Harvey, at kharvey@ila.org.
