Call for proposals

Advances in Library Administration and Organization
Project Management in the Library Workplace
Publication due 2018

Series Editor: Samantha Hines, Peninsula College

Volume Editor: Alice Daugherty, Louisiana State University Libraries

Many works have been published on ‘how to do project management’ in
librarianship, but there are gaps in coverage of the deeper issues and
surrounding processes. For example, what methods have been successfully
used, in the library workplace, to assess efficacy of project management?  What
are the future trends and implications for library administration and
management as formal project management schema become more commonplace in
library work? How do these formal schemas demonstrably affect and improve
library workplaces? For this forthcoming volume we welcome submissions that
consider how project management affects library administration and that
address the role of project management in the library workplace.

Proposals in the following areas would be of particular interest:

·         Assessments of project management approaches

·         Integration of project management processes and procedures within

·         Project leadership in libraries and future trends

·         Project management education and certification for library workers

This will be the first volume of *Advances in Library Administration and
Organization* (ALAO) to publish in 2018.

About the Advances in Library Administration and Organization series

offers long-form research, comprehensive discussions of theoretical
developments, and in-depth accounts of evidence-based practice in library
administration and organization.  The series answers the questions, “How
have libraries been managed, and how should they be managed?” It goes
beyond a platform for the sharing of research to provide a venue for
dialogue across issues, in a way that traditional peer reviewed journals
cannot.  Through this series, practitioners can glean new approaches in
challenging times and collaborate on the exploration of scholarly solutions
to professional quandaries.
