You are a SPECIAL Librarian! You are a Military Librarian!

Invitation for contributions to “Journal of Library Administration”

From SLA Connect

I edit a column for the Journal of Library Administration on special libraries, and I am seeking contributions. The journal is peer-reviewed, but column contributions are not – making this a great opportunity for new authors. I’m happy to talk with you about a contribution, and especially if you would be able to meet an early February deadline. The invitation is below, and also online at


The Journal of Library Administration is currently seeking articles and proposals for “The Specialist” column.

Special libraries are underrepresented in the professional literature. “The Specialist” provides a forum for professionals in special libraries to share their experiences and insights with each other and with the wider library community, and for researchers and educators to share their views on special libraries.

The column’s scope includes corporate, non-profit, government, and independent libraries as well as the specialized departments and branches of academic and public libraries. Contributions from practitioners and scholars on any aspect of special libraries are welcome.

The Journal of Library Administration is the primary source of information on all aspects of the effective management of libraries. Stressing the practical, this forward-looking journal provides information that library administrators need to efficiently and effectively manage their organizations.

For more information about the Journal of Library Administration, including complete submission instructions, please visit the journal’s webpage: 

Submission Instructions

Interested authors are invited to submit proposals and articles to the column editor at Articles should be 3,500-4,500 words in length. The editor welcomes queries and proposals from both new and experienced authors.
