This is a call for articles for a special issue of _Library Hi Tech_,
whose focus will be on new-look and open-source OPAC solutions. The
editor of this special issue is looking for innovative and interesting
ways that libraries are either adding 3rd party software front-ends to
their OPACs, 3rd party software back-ends that power-use structured
metadata, or open-source OPAC replacements as add-ons or are totally
reconstructed for new uses and applications of the structured metadata.
Applications that focus on user needs, user ease-of-use, and Library 2.0
ideas are especially encouraged.
If you are interested in submitting an article, please send a short
proposal, discussing the topic and a suggested title, to the email below
by March 30, 2008. Draft articles are due to the editor by October 1,
2008. Inquiries and questions are also welcome.
Dr. Brad Eden
Associate University Librarian for Technical Services and Scholarly
