>The Advances in Library Administration and Organization is seeking
>proposals for their 2015 volume on staffing for the future.  The call can
>be found at 
>and is pasted below and attached as well.
>The call:
>Libraries are dealing with unprecedented changes on several fronts:
>technological developments, funding difficulties, and an increasing need
>to prove themselves to a demanding population.  These factors
>understandably impact library staffing.  Looking toward the future, what
>changes can we expect to see in how libraries are staffed, how staff are
>trained and continue to learn, and how we will recruit and maintain staff.
>The 2015 volume of Advances in Library Administration and Organization
>will focus on the future of library staffing.
>ALAO offers long-form research, comprehensive discussions of theoretical
>developments, and in-depth accounts of evidence-based practice in library
>administration and organization.  The series aims to answer the questions,
>³How have libraries been managed, and how should they be managed?²
>It goes beyond a platform for the sharing of research to provide a venue
>for dialogue across issues, in a way that traditional peer reviewed
>journals cannot.  Through this series, practitioners can glean new
>approaches in challenging times and collaborate on the exploration of
>scholarly solutions to professional quandaries.
>We are currently seeking proposals for the 2015 volume on staffing for the
>future.  If you are interested in being part of this volume, please send a
>proposal including author details and estimated length of final submission
>to Samantha.hines at umontana.edu<mailto:Samantha.hines at umontana.edu> by
>October 17, 2014.
