Eight Days Remain To Submit Articles For the 2011 Ed. of "Best Practices for Government Libraries"
From a Government Info Pro Blog Post by Marie Kaddell:
This is just a reminder that submissions are still being accepted for the 2011 Best Practices for Government Libraries. The theme is: E-Initiatives and E-Efforts: Expanding Our Horizon. The deadline for submissions is May 13th.
Here are some additional details:
The annual collaborative document, Best Practices for Government Libraries, showcases government librarians who are innovating and creating success in the workplace and beyond. The 2010 Best Practices for Government Libraries includes 70 articles and other submissions provided by more than 60 contributors from libraries in government agencies, courts, and the military, as well as from e-gov, e-everything. Your submission could be electronic or hard copy, cutting-edge or time-tested but with a new twist, in place or conceptual, in the workplace or in the community.
The scope of submissions is only limited by your imagination. In past years, we have received: program descriptions and promotional materials, planning documents, websites and blog entries, video, displays, original articles, tips and techniques, testimonials, awards, and personal observations on the topic.
I particularly want to encourage you to consider the submission of a short, original article on the topic of E-Initiatives and E-Efforts from any angle: library, organization, profession, or personal.
Questions? Have Something to Submit? Feel Free to Contact Marie Kaddell by E-Mail
Note: Even if you’re not submitting something for the 2011 Best Practices for Government Libraries make sure to take a look at the 2010 edition. Many of the articles will be of interest to all librarians.
