Library Mashups

More Library Mashups: Call for Contributors

 Library Mashups has been a huge success and has touched so many of you, and now it’s time to start thinking about the second edition! In 2014 Information Today Inc. will be publishing the second edition of Library Mashups entitled More Library Mashups. This edition will have new stories from some of the authors you have come to know from the first edition as well as some new examples.

Last time I compiled a list of authors that I knew were doing some great things with mashups, but this time I’d like to open things up to all of you to submit your proposals. If you’re interested in participating and sharing your library’s story or your own personal favorite mashup please take the time to fill out the proposal form. To get ideas for what your proposal should look like please review the table of contents from the first edition.

Decisions will be made by April 1 and the form will close on the 1st of March. Chapters should be 3,000-5,000 words each and should be written in an informal and approachable manner. All chosen authors will receive chapter author credit and a free copy of the book. The deadline for chapter submission (if chosen) is August 15, 2013.
