LHRT encourages research and publication on library history and promotes awareness and discussion of historical issues in librarianship.
Call for Peer Reviewers
As part of the process of disseminating the research from the Library History Seminar XIV, “Libraries beyond Borders,” hosted by the Library History Round Table (LHRT) of the American Library Association (ALA) in summer 2021, we are recruiting volunteers to serve on our review board to peer review essays to be featured in a collection. This book is being edited by Steven A. Knowlton, Ellen Pozzi, Jordan Sly, and Emily D. Spunaugle and will be published by ALA Editions.
The reviewing period will take place from May to July 2022.
To indicate your interest in participating as a peer-reviewer, please use the Google Form, linked below. The form asks for your name, email, and two questions: your experience in scholarly publishing, including writing and/or reviewing manuscripts; and your areas of expertise, such as library type, research methods, time period, subject matter, geography, etc.
Link to form: https://forms.gle/W1CVYarj16mmXTWU7
The editors will contact you in April 2022 about reviewing assignments. If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to email Jordan Sly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your consideration,
