Call for Proposals for book chapters for the 40th anniversary of the Section on Education and Training

We welcome contributions to a monograph celebrating the 40th anniversary of SET.

Those interested in contributing a chapter to a monograph celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Section on Education and Training should prepare a proposal of no more than 1,500 words (10,000 spaces). The finished chapters should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words.

  • Proposals should focus on library and information science education and training (not libraries per se).

  • Proposals may take a local, national or regional perspective.

  • Historical proposals are preferred and they should explain the social and cultural context of the institutions being described. Authors are encouraged to include future plans and perspectives as well as information about the past.

  • Proposals may be in any of the official IFLA languages, but German, French, Spanish and English are preferred. The language of the final text will likely be in English, depending on publisher requirements.

  • Some authors may be invited to present at the off-site session on August 18, 2014 of the 2015 IFLA Conference in Lyon.

  • Proposals should be sent to seadle@ibi.hu-berlin.de.


The deadline for proposals is 24 January 2014.


A committee will review the proposals and respond to authors by 24 February 2014 to say whether the proposal has been accepted. Please note that it may not be possible to accept all proposals. Some revisions may also be requested.

Chapters due

Finished chapters will be due on 14 July 2014 (in honor of Bastille Day in France).

Editorial review

An editorial review of the final chapters will take place after chapters are delivered. Some revisions may be requested.
