Here's a professional opportunity  . . .


CFP: Virtual Reference in Modern Libraries: Innovative Methods for User Interaction

Sonnet Ireland (University of New Orleans, USA)

Call for Chapters
Proposals Submission Deadline: April 30, 2014

Full Chapters Due: May 30, 2014

For release in the Advances
 in Library and Information Science (ALIS) Book Series
The ALIS Book Series aims to expand the body of library science literature by covering a wide range of topics affecting the profession
 and field at large. The series also seeks to provide readers with an essential resource for uncovering the latest research in library and information science management, development, and technologies.
With budget cuts and doubts about the necessity of the roles librarians play, it may seem as if we haven't any time to explore new ways
 to interact with our users.  In fact, the opposite is true.  Many librarians are taking their limitations and turning them into innovations.  This surge in creativity needs to be shared across the profession so that other libraries and librarians can benefit.
This book will explore innovative methods for reaching and interacting with users, especially in terms of virtual
 reference.  The chapters in this book will focus on various types of virtual reference that libraries have adopted in recent years.  It will also look at ways librarians are virtually interacting with their users and be written for librarians who want to learn
 techniques that can be applied at their own libraries and enhance their own users' experiences.
Target Audience
The target audience of this book will be composed of professionals and researchers working in the field of information
 and knowledge management in various aspects of librarianship, e.g., reference, public services, instruction, and technology. Moreover, the book will provide insights and support to librarians who wish to develop these skills in their own careers.
