*Call for Papers: New Research in Collection Management and Development ALA
Annual 2020*

The Publications Committee of the Collection Management Section of ALCTS is
sponsoring the program “New Research in Collection Management and
Development” (previously known as the “Annual Collection Management &
Development Research Forum”) at the 2020 American Library Association
Annual Conference held in Chicago, Illinois, from June 25-30, 2020.

This is an opportunity to present and discuss your research.
Completed research as well as research in progress will be considered.
All researchers, including collection practitioners from all types of
libraries, library school faculty and students, and other interested
individuals, are encouraged to submit a proposal.

The Committee will use a blind review process to select two projects. The
selected researchers are required to present their papers in person at the
forum. Each researcher should plan for a 20-minute presentation, with a
10-minute open discussion following each presentation.

*Criteria for selection:*

   - Significance of the study for improving collection management and
   development practice

   - Potential for research to fill a gap in collections scholarship or to
   build on previous studies

   - Quality and creativity of the methodology

   - Research published or accepted for publication after December 13, 2018
   will be considered. Previously published research or research accepted for
   publication prior to December 13, 2018, will not be accepted.


The submission must consist of no more than two pages. On the first page,
please list your name(s), title(s), institutional affiliation(s), and
contact information (including your mailing address, telephone number, fax
number, and email address). The second page should be a one-page proposal,
and it should NOT show your name or any personal information. Instead, it
must include only:

   - The title of your project

   - A clear statement of the research problem

   - A description of the research methodology used

   - Results of the project, if any

The *deadline for proposals* is December 20, 2019.

*Notification of acceptance* will be made by February 28, 2020.
ALCTS, in its bylaws, claims the right of first refusal for publication of
any work emanating from an ALCTS body or program.
