On behalf of the “Serials Spoken Here” column in Serials Review, I’m seeking reporters to cover the following sessions at ACRL:


Everything you ever wanted to know about predatory publishing but were afraid to ask;

Walking the plank: how scholarly piracy affects publishers, libraries and their users;

Broadening Horizons: Transforming Public Services with Technical Services Knowledge;

Enhancing E-Resource Records for Discoverability;

Addicted to the Brand?: Brand Loyalty Theory as a Means of Understanding Academics’ Scholarly Communication Practices;

Supplementing traditional ways of measuring scholarly impact: The altmetrics way;

and, I Don’t Want My Article Next to That!: Educating Faculty and Graduate Students about Issues of Open Access, Institutional Repositories, and “Predatory” Publishers.


Aside from these sessions, I’m sure there are others of which I’m unaware that would be of interest to the readership. Interested parties are encouraged to get in touch for further details.
