Editorial Inquiries

ALA TechSource seeks writers for Library Technology Reports. Our goal is to help library administration and staff make good decisions in technology projects and purchases. Reports may address the application of technology to library services, offer evaluative descriptions of specific products or product classes, or cover emerging technology. The length is 15,000-18,000 words, and we pay a flat fee to writers. Send a query to the editor Patrick Hogan (phogan [at] ala [dot] org).
