Please think about and prepare proposals engaging with the theme of PERSISTENCE & RESILIENCE. How are persistence and resilience characteristics of your practice? What strategies do you employ to adjust and surmount unexpected or great challenges? What pedagogies, tools, or practices have you considered (or discarded) on your path? What successes resulted from your persistence and/or resilience? How have you been resilient in the face of a perceived failure or setback?

Call for Papers – International Journal of Library and Information Services (IJLIS)
The mission of the International Journal of Library and Information Services (IJLIS) is to disseminate emerging research in library service innovation, and provide a venue for librarians, researchers, professionals, vendors, and academics to interact and exchange ideas. The journal addresses a variety of technologies, scholarly perspectives, and applications in the field.
Starting January 1st, 2021, this journal will be converting from Hybrid Open Access to full Gold Open Access, meaning all of its published contents will be 100% open access and the copyright of the published work will stay with the author(s). The Article Processing Charge (APC) for this journal is currently set at $750 USD and authors will not be asked to provide payment of the APC fee (directly to the publisher) until AFTER their manuscript has gone through the full double-blind peer review process and the Editor-in-Chief at his/her full discretion has decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. Those coming from certain developing countries will be able to take advantage of discounts or waivers with careful consideration by IGI Global’s Executive Editorial Board. Also, authors of submitted manuscripts can take advantage of IGI Global’s Read and Publish Open Access Initiative, which allows authors who are affiliated with institutions that are currently subscribed to one or more IGI Global databases to benefit from APC funding. In the case of a multi-authored work, even if only one author is eligible for the discount or waiver, all authors of the work will benefit from the waiver or discount.
