Advances in Library Administration and Organization 2016 Volume: The Future of Library Space

Series Editor: Samantha Hines, Missoula College at the University of Montana

Libraries are dealing with unprecedented changes on several fronts:
technological developments, funding difficulties, and an increasing need to
prove themselves to a demanding population.  These factors understandably
impact physical library space. Looking toward the future, what changes can we
expect to see in how libraries use space?

The first 2016 volume of Advances in Library Administration and Organization
will focus on the future of library spaces.  ALAO offers long-form research,
comprehensive discussions of theoretical developments, and in-depth accounts of
evidence-based practice in library administration and organization.  The series
aims to answer the questions, “How have libraries been managed, and how
should they be managed?” It goes beyond a platform for the sharing of
research to provide a venue for dialogue across issues, in a way that
traditional peer reviewed journals cannot.  Through this series, practitioners
can glean new approaches in challenging times and collaborate on the
exploration of scholarly solutions to professional quandaries.

We are currently seeking proposals for the 2016 volume on the future of library
space. If you are interested in being part of this volume, please send a
proposal including author details and estimated length of final submission to by July 31, 2015.
