Call for Chapter Proposals: Upcoming ALA Publication Person-Centered Management in Academic Libraries (Deadline Fri., July 29)

(via Maoria Kirker, George Mason University)

We are excited to share that an edited volume, tentatively titled Person-Centered Management in Academic Libraries, will be published in 2024 by ALA Editions. This volume will be edited by Dani Brecher Cook, Maoria J. Kirker, and Diann Smothers. We are currently soliciting proposals for chapters that relate to the overall theme of person-centered management.

At this point, we envision including three types of chapters: Theory (3-4,000 words), Practical (3-4,000 words), and Reflective (1,000 words) chapters. We encourage and welcome ideas beyond these categories, as well as chapters that mix these approaches.

We welcome submissions by current, former, and aspiring managers; new and experienced writers; and practitioners from community colleges, colleges, and universities.

You can view the full call for proposals and submission form here.

Proposals are due Friday, July 29, at 10:59 PM CDT. All proposals will receive notification of acceptance or rejection by the end of August, 2022.

Please send any questions you have about the book to the editors, at personcenteredmanagement@gmail.com.
