This is just a reminder that submissions are still being accepted for the 2011 Best Practices for Government Libraries. The theme is: E-Initiatives and E-Efforts: Expanding Our Horizon. The deadline for submissions is May 13th.
Here are some additional details:
The annual collaborative document, Best Practices for Government Libraries, showcases government librarians who are innovating and creating success in the workplace and beyond. The 2010 Best Practices for Government Libraries includes 70 articles and other submissions provided by more than 60 contributors from libraries in government agencies, courts, and the military, as well as from professional association leaders, LexisNexis consultants, and more. Articles from Best Practices are posted on the Government Info Pro blog.
You can see the PDF version of the 2010 Best Practices here: 2010 Best Practices for Government Libraries: The New Face of Value. Earlier editions are also available in PDF from the right sidebar of the Government Info Pro blog.
This year, the topic for the document is E-Initiatives and E-Efforts: Expanding Our Horizons. We seek examples of your efforts to create, provide, and showcase whatever e-efforts you have been working on: e-libraries, e-collections, e-services, e-pubs, e-programs, e-gov, e-everything. Your submission could be electronic or hard copy, cutting-edge or time-tested but with a new twist, in place or conceptual, in the workplace or in the community.
The scope of submissions is only limited by your imagination. In past years, we have received: program descriptions and promotional materials, planning documents, websites and blog entries, video, displays, original articles, tips and techniques, testimonials, awards, and personal observations on the topic.
I particularly want to encourage you to consider the submission of a short, original article on the topic of E-Initiatives and E-Efforts from any angle: library, organization, profession, or personal.
For the 2011 edition of Best Practices, please submit your electronic documents to Marie Kaddell by email. The deadline for submission is May 13, 2011. If you have any questions about the 2011 Best Practices collaborative document, please do not hesitate to contact me.
