The Oregon Library Association Quarterly is seeking submissions for the
Spring 2020 issue.  The OLAQ is a professional journal that showcases the
writing and work of library employees in Oregon, and is indexed in LIS

The theme for the Spring 2020 issue is digital privacy and security, and
will be guest-edited by Ellie Avis, Collection Development Librarian at
Josephine Community Library District and by Kelly McElroy, Student
Engagement and Community Outreach Librarian at Oregon State University.

The American Library Association has enshrined privacy as a core value, and
library workers seek to preserve the right to read and learn without
surveillance. However, in an increasingly connected world, new issues face
libraries and our users. How are libraries around Oregon supporting
patrons’ rights to privacy, both in the library and beyond? This issue
seeks to increase awareness of the range of privacy issues applicable to
libraries and bolster our collective understanding of libraries as active
partners in promoting privacy. This issue could include perspectives on
training staff to protect patron data, public programs related to privacy,
protecting user privacy in licensing agreements with vendors, writing and
implementing a privacy policy in an organization, and/or collaborations
within and outside the library.

Potential authors are invited to email Ellie and Kelly with their questions
and ideas at eavis at josephinelibrary.org
and kelly.mcelroy at oregonstate.edu
Proposals (~150 words) are due March 1, 2020 and articles on April 15, 2020
with a tentative OLAQ publication date of May 15, 2020.  Article length
averages 1,000 to 2,500 words, and images and creative work are welcome.
