The Ideabook of Positive Change in the Library Workplace (Working Title)
We are soliciting a diverse range of essays and narratives from practicing and retired U.S. academic, public and special libraries staff, for inclusion in a curated anthology that empowers library employees to change real-world issues pertaining to library staff. Submissions may include any phase of project development, but we are especially seeking: perspectives and advice on how to make and implement change, how to talk to administration about needs, the specific steps taken in the process, solutions to roadblocks and recognition of the future needs of staff. We also seek narratives, steps, and ideas from administrators on how to implement and create a positive work environment and the challenges faced in this process. Paraprofessional staff and first-time authors are also encouraged to apply.
