From the ACRL Insider blog :
"...College Libraries Section (CLS) is pleased to announce the launch of CLIPP: College Library Information on Policy and Practice, a reconceptualization of ACRL’s CLIPNotes publication series. ... this next generation monographic series will provide richer context and more sophisticated analysis of current trends and issues....
The underlying premise of CLIPP is that libraries across the country are grappling with the same challenges and there is much to be gained by sharing information. ...
Each CLIPP volume will explore an important library issue through a comprehensive literature review, survey data, and best practices documents, which will provide actual solutions created by other colleges and small universities.
Call for Proposals
Any librarian at a college or small university can submit a publication proposal to the CLIPP committee. Any trend or subject of interest to college and small university libraries is a potential topic. Proposal ideas could include:
- The changing nature of collections (e-books, remote storage, weeding policies, etc.)
- Mobile access
- Grant writing
- Staff development
- The place of the library in campus organizational structures
