Please excuse cross-postings.

The Publications Committee of the Collection Management Section of ALCTS is
sponsoring the program “New Research in Collection Management and
Development” (previously known as the Annual Collection Management &
Development Research Forum) at the 2018 American Library Association Annual
Conference held in New Orleans, LA from June 21-26, 2018.

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:


   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 December 13, 2016, 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

The *deadline *for proposals is *December 18, 2017*.

Notification of *acceptance *will be made by *February 28, 2018*.

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 by email to:

Jennifer Bazeley, Co-Chair, CMS Publications Committee
