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
http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/books/series.htm?id=0732-0671,
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><mailto:Samantha.hines at umontana.edu> by
October 17, 2014.
