Call for Papers "Library Trends" - The Joy of Information

This sounds like an interesting call for papers for the John Hopkins University Press  peer-reviewed journal "Library Trends." Perhaps joy isn't something we talk and write about enough in the library world?

special issue of Library Trends will  feature writings that explore the relationship between information and joy. In the spirit of a positive information science (Kari & Hartel, 2007), the forthcoming collection brings together bright and uplifting views of information to contrast with critical or problem-oriented perspectives that color our literature in grayscale.

Guest Editors:
Jenna Hartel Associate Professor, Faculty of Information, University of Toronto
Hailey Siracky, Director of Library Services, St. Joseph’s College, University of Alberta, 

Submissions due on 1 August - full papers, no more than 7,000 words
