By: Marie Kaddell, DC/SLA President & Editor of Best Practices for Government Libraries
I have been getting requests for a little more writing time from people who are still working on their articles, so I’m extending the deadline for submissions for Best Practices to August 16th.
For those people who have been thinking about writing, but didn’t think there was time, this is a golden opportunity to jump in. Email me right away with your article concept.
As a reminder, the topic for the 2013 Best Practices is Managing Evolving Resources: Strategies, Capabilities, and Alternatives. You can write to the topic from a variety of angles including (but not limited to): balance of physical, digital, and online resources; utilization of library staff; managing tighter space and tighter budgets; organizational effectiveness; professional skills needed to get the job done; mining the value of volunteer and professional association experience; or efforts in the area of social media, mobile apps, ebooks/elending, etc.
