The ALA SRRT (Social Responsibilities Round Table) Newsletter is always looking for good articles, essays, and letters to the editor. The next submission deadline is Monday, May 30.

The theme for the June, 2022, issue of the SRRT Newsletter is “poverty and homelessness”. What would you like to share about the work your library has done in addressing poverty and homelessness in your community? What barriers have you encountered? What have you learned?

The SRRT Newsletter invites submissions from library and information workers, students, educators, and all others who recognize the critical importance of libraries in addressing community and social issues. Please send your submissions electronically in one of the following formats: MS Word, RTF, PDF, or plain text pasted into the body of an email. Submissions should be 500 to 1,000 words and should include the article title, author’s name and title, and school or place of work (optional). Graphics are encouraged. If using images that are already on the Internet, the URL of the image and a caption or description may be added to the text of the submission.

Please e-mail original submissions to SRRT Newsletter Co-Editors Julie Winkelstein and Doreen Dixon at jwinkels@utk.edu or srrt.newsletter.content@gmail.com, indicating “SRRT Newsletter” within the subject line of your e-mail. A confirmation of receipt will be sent in a timely manner.
