Πρόσκληση για συγγραφή κεφαλαίου για την Ελλάδα στο βιβλίο με τίτλο Dysfunction in Libraries and LIS: Perspectives and Experiences from Europe and Australia, με editor τον κ. Spencer Accadia, Assistant Professor at University of Denver, Morgridge College of Education, Department of Research Methods and Information Science και Chair, IFLA Knowledge Management Section 2021-2023.
This is a call for chapter proposals for a new, forthcoming book with planned publication by the international scholarly publisher Routledge tentatively titled Dysfunction in Libraries and LIS: Perspectives and Experiences from Europe and Australia. The book editor, Spencer Acadia, recently completed a soon-to-be-released book (also by Routledge) titled Libraries as Dysfunctional Organizations and Workplaces. In that book, authors from the United States and Canada discuss workplace dysfunction in the North American library context.
The new book seeks to expand the geography of dysfunction related to library and information sciences (LIS) and libraries. The editor seeks proposals whose chapters will advance discourse on dysfunction in libraries as workplaces, and within LIS as a discipline and profession, for European and Australian library contexts. Proposals concerning the New Zealand library context will also be considered.
Please review the full call for chapter proposals that provides further details and example topics.
Only proposals pertaining to library and LIS dysfunction in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand will be considered. Authors may reside anywhere in the world, but proposals must demonstrate knowledge of dysfunction related to libraries and LIS contexts pertaining to these geographies. All proposals must be submitted on or before Monday, October 31, 2022.
Authors of accepted proposals will be asked to write a high-quality book chapter intended for professional and scholarly audiences worldwide in English and between 4,500 to 7,500 words.
Please email any questions to the editor. Best regards,
