Subject: LCATS Call for Reporters -- Spring Conferences

_Library Collections, Acquisitions and Technical Services_ (LCATS) (formerly
_Library Acquisitions: Practice & Theory_)  regularly covers conferences
related to technical services and collection development.  In addition, we
try to provide coverage for other conferences as well:  those with an
international focus or those which include our areas of interest in addition
to other areas.

I am soliciting your help and interest in covering a number of conferences
or institutes this spring./summer  For these conferences (with the exception
of ACRL), a report of the entire conference is desired.  For ACRL, a report
focused on sessions related to technical services and collection management
would be expected.  The reports would appear as a single article in the
journal with the reporter(s) byline.  The single (or primary) author
receives reprints and proofs of their section for review.  Reports are
generally 10-20 double-spaced pages depending on the content of the meeting
covered.  In some cases, lengthy programs might warrant longer reports.

If you are planning to attend any of these conferences and institutes and
would be interested in providing a report on the program, please respond via
e-mail ( as soon as possible.  Your finished report
would be due to me approximately one month after the conference ended. An
excellent sample report appears in vol. 21, no. 2 -- Rachel Miller,
"Emerging Patterns of Collection Development in an Expanding Resource
Sharing, Electronic Information, and Network Environment: Report of a
Conference," _Library Acquisitions: Practice and Theory_ 21 (1997): 211-
219.  More extensive guidelines for the article are also available at the
journal website:

Thanks in advance for your help.
