Serving as editors, Sue Polanka and Mirela Roncevic have issued a call for article proposals for ALA’s new eContent Quarterly. From the No Shelf Required post:
eContent Quarterly is now accepting proposals for contributions to its Spring 2014 issue. Librarians, publishers, vendors, and other information science professionals interested in writing an article about how their institution is braving an e-content challenge, or if they are in the midst of developing or releasing a product librarians and information professionals should know about, may send their proposal to the editors (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com), including a detailed description of the topic and information about affiliation and credentials.
