Book Publisher: McFarland
Vera Gubnitskaia, co-editor, Library Partnerships with Writers and Poets (McFarland, 2017); public, academic librarian, indexer.
Carol Smallwood, co-editor. Library's Role in Supporting Financial Literacy for Patrons (Rowman& Littlefield, 2016); public library administrator, special, school librarian.
One or two chapters (3,000-5,000 words) sought from U.S. practicing academic, public, school, special librarians, LIS faculty, library administrators, and board members. Successful proposals will address creative, practical, how-to chapters and case studies depicting a variety of specific programs, projects, aspects, and angles of the library role and impact on homeschooling process, families, and students, within the library walls and beyond. We are also looking for ideas (whether implemented or not) that can serve as a basis, a foundation, to incorporate into an MLIS course; a Human Resources’ or an organizational plan, as well as a kick-start to personal career goals planning. A tentative Table of Contents can be provided per request.

Compensation: one complimentary copy per 3,000-5,000 word chapter accepted no matter how many co-authors or if one or two chapters by the same author(s); author discount.
