Call for Book Chapters - The Entrepreneurial Librarian

Call for Book Chapters for The Entrepreneurial Librarian

Deadline: December 5, 2011

The editors of The Entrepreneurial Librarian, a book to be 
published by McFarland & Company in 2011, seek chapters that 
detail library-related entrepreneurial ventures.

The book will cover four models of entrepreneurship:

*  Intrapreneurship, innovative products and services developed 
in a library that stayed within the library

*  Entrepreneurship, projects that became commercial ventures 
with financial risk and reward

*  Funding entrepreneurship, in which the library developed 
innovative, non-traditional non-governmental funding sources

*  Social entrepreneurship, in which the objective of the project 
is to raise awareness or educate the public about a social cause.

Like the upcoming conference, The Conference for Entrepreneurial 
Librarians: From Vision to Implementation in March 2011, the book 
will document examples of entrepreneurial librarians and their 
activities. The book will be edited by a three-librarian team of 
editors. Information about the conference and editors can be 
found at http://zsr.wfu.edu/entrelib/

Chapter requirements:

*  Consist of 8,000 - 10,000 words

*  Fall within one of the four models described above

*  Qualify as original, neither previously published nor 
simultaneously submitted


*  Chapter proposals of 500 words are due by December 5, 2010.

*  Authors will be notified by  December 31, 2010 of decisions 
about their inclusion in the book

*  Chapters will be due by  April 8, 2011

Your proposal should be sent to mmkrautt@uncg.edu with the 
subject line Book Chapter Proposal and should include:

Professional Title
Institution or company name
Daytime phone number
Chapter title and description of approximately 500 words
