To make Children and Libraries a truly interactive publication, we're looking for ALSC members to serve as volunteer referees for journal articles. Unsolicited articles and those of a scholarly nature must be submitted to at least two referees to judge the submissions on accuracy, style, impact, importance, and interest. Specialists in particular areas (such as technology, literature, intellectual freedom, programming, etc.) are especially needed.
Referees make recommendations to the CAL editor on whether or not manuscripts should be accepted for publication. Interested ALSC member librarians should contact CAL editor Sharon Korbeck Verbeten at 820 Spooner Ct., De Pere, WI 54115, phone: 920-339-2740, or e-mail, for more information on the referee process.
