*Extended Call!*

*Call for Papers*

*The Eight Annual Collection Management & Development Research Forum*

*ALA Annual 2017*

The Publications Committee of the Collection Management Section of ALCTS is
sponsoring the Seventh Annual Collection Management & Development Research
Forum at the 2017 American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago.

This is an opportunity to present and discuss your research.  Both
completed research and research in progress will be considered.  All
researchers, including collection practitioners from all types of
libraries, library school faculty and students, and other interested
individuals, are encouraged to submit a proposal.

The Committee will use a "blind review” process to select two projects.
The selected researchers are required to present their papers in person at
the forum.  Each researcher should plan for a 20 minute presentation, with
a 10 minute open discussion following each presentation.    Criteria for
selection are:

     Significance of the study for improving collection management and
development practices

     Potential for research to fill a gap in collections scholarship or to
build on previous studies

     Quality and creativity of the methodology

     Previously published research or research accepted for publication
prior to February 14, 2017, will not be accepted.

The submission must consist of no more than two pages.  On the first page,
please list your name(s), title(s), institutional affiliation(s), and
contact information (including your mailing address, telephone number, fax
number, and email address).  The second page should be a one-page proposal,
and it should NOT show your name or any personal information.  Instead, it
must include only:

     The title of your project

     A clear statement of the research problem

     A description of the research methodology used

     Results of the project, if any

Examples of research presented at previous forums have included

   - Comparison of demand driven e-book packages for Humanities university
   press books
   - Comparison of Biographical Information in Commercial Literary
   Databases and on the Open Web
   - Assessment of a Fully Integrated Patron Driven Access (PDA) Model
   - Comparison of Citation Use Patterns to Link Resolver and Vendor
   Statistics in Journals in the Health Sciences Fields
   - Development of a holistic approach to collection development and
   - Development of a data-driven weeding project
   - Development of a sustainable, permanent assessment process to maintain
   shelf capacity equilibrium without an adverse effect on librarian time

*The deadline for proposals is February 17, 2017*.

Notification of acceptance will be made by March 17, 2017.

ALCTS, in its bylaws, claims the right of first refusal for publication of
any work emanating from an ALCTS body or program.

Please send submissions to:
