I have a contract to deliver a book on the changing role of Systems Librarians and Systems Offices in libraries to Chandos Publishing in the UK by April 1 2010. I am looking for contributors who can provide a chapter on the subject. Of special interest are
* IT infrastructure
* Relationships with Vendors
* Library culture
* Public Relations/Marketing/Fundraising
* Open Source Software
* Hosted databases
and how these have changed what you do over the past few years. Since this is a British Publisher any contribution from outside the US would be especially interesting. If you are a Systems Librarian (or equivalent) and would like to submit a chapter please send me a proposal. It does not have to be formal at this point, just a paragraph or two on what you would write about and your contact information. Deadline for chapters in January 1, 2010. Please address all inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.

I thought this archive might be of interest as another place to make LIS related articles available.
"E-LIS was formed in 2003 for the deposit of documents in the Library and Information Science (LIS) domain. It is the first international e-server in this subject area and resulted from the RCLIS (Research in Computing, Library and Information Science) project and the DoIS (Documents in Information Science), promoted by the Spanish Ministry of Culture and hosted by AEPIC team on machines of the Italian Consorzio Interuniversitario Lombardo per Elaborazione Automatica (CILEA). E-LIS relies on the voluntary work of individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and is non-commercial. There is neither funding nor interest in profiting from the initiative.
E-LIS aims to further the Open Access philosophy by making available papers in LIS and related fields. It is a free-access international archive, in line with the Free Online Scholarship (FOS) movement and the Eprints movement, based on the Open Archive Initiative (OAI) standards and protocols."
