call for papers

Library Hi Tech News (LHTN) is actively seeking submissions. LHTN is an
established (1984+) print and online monthly journal that quickly
publishes articles of interest to our international readership. The
journal’s major focus is on developments in library technology. Published by Emerald Publishing Group, LHTN is interested in
articles of varying lengths, reports from relevant conferences, and case
studies of library use of technology. The editors will work with authors
that are new to LIS publishing, and those who are seeking outlets for
reporting on practical uses of IT in libraries. Publishing your article
in LHTN can be “a place to start,” analogous to a “poster session in
print” and does not preclude publishing a more fulsome piece in a
peer-reviewed journal at a later date. Readers consider LHTN the source
to hear what’s coming next in terms of technology development for academic
and public libraries. Submissions particularly welcome in the following
areas (for example):

. New Web Browsers/Search Engines
. Virtual Reference/Pilots/Experiments
. Library Uses of Skype/VOIP
. Integrated Library Systems (ILSs) and ILMS
. Blogging
. Discovery Tools/Federated Search
