Hi everyone,

I have the privilege of guest-editing the Fall 2017 of the Oregon Library
Association Quarterly. This issue’s theme will be “Small Libraries, Big
Ideas”, wording courtesy of OLA Communications Committee Chair Charles
Wood. Would you like to write for the OLA Quarterly? In case you don’t
know, the OLAQ is an official publication of the Oregon Library
Association. It showcases the work of authors who work or are interested in
Oregon Libraries.

Many people likely already know that small and rural libraries are dear to
my heart; my very first library job was in one of the smallest public
libraries in the state, Langlois Public Library
<http://www.galepages.com/s6807971> on the south coast. There are a whole
lot of libraries of all types in Oregon, and the vast majority of you are
small or rural. The Fall 2017 issue is dedicated to the big work you’re
doing at those small and rural libraries, whether you’re at a public,
academic, school, or special library or simply live in or love a rural
community. Have you worked in a small and/or rural library and would like
to share your experience? Do you have an awesome project you’d to share
with the larger Oregon library community? Do you think that you serve your
community in particularly unique and interesting ways? We’d like to hear
from you!

This is an opportunity to have your writing published in a professional
journal which is indexed in many library science databases and have your
ideas broadcast around the world. If you are interested in writing for this
issue, please email me a brief, 150-word proposal at bnielsen at crooklib.org.
The submission and publication schedule for this issue is:

·         Article proposal deadline: September 25th

·         First draft deadline: October 23rd

·         Publishing goal: December 1st

Articles average 1500 to 2500 words. Citations need to be in APA style. If
you need a bit of help getting your article ready to publish, OLAQ’s crack
team of editors (Charles, Jenn Weston, Jane Scheppke, Lynne Stahl, and Sara
Thompson) is happy to help. The OLA Quarterly is indexed by Library
Literature & Information Science and Library, Information Science &
Technology Abstracts. Full text of the OLAQ is also available through HW
Wilson's Library Literature and Information Science Full Text and EBSCO
Publishing's Library, Information Science and Technology Abstracts (LISTA)
with Full Text.
