Call for Chapter Proposals: E-Learning Innovations in Academic Libraries

Librarians from Appalachian State University invite you to submit a proposal for a chapter in their upcoming book, E-Learning Innovations in Academic Libraries, to be published by McFarland Publishing.  This practical book is intended to be a guide for academic librarians interested in the creation and uses of e-learning tools.
Examples of relevant topics include:
    Virtual tours
    Instructional games
    Geo-spatial applications
    Virtual reality applications
    Classroom use of technology
For consideration, e-mail a 1-2 page proposal to either of the editors by 
April 25, 2014, clearly presenting your e-learning innovation and its significance. Proposals should include information about the audience and need for the e-learning tool, the technology used to create it, the length of time it has been used, assessment, and the transferability to other libraries.  Final chapters will be 5-7000 words, excluding endnotes and bibliography. Authors will be notified of the acceptance of their proposals by May 12, 2014. Complete chapters will be due by August 30, 2014, as we anticipate publishing this book in Summer 2015.
