Subject: [Jerome-L] CFP: CJAL Special Issue on Labour and Canadian Academic Libraries
To: <[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>>

The Canadian Journal of Academic Librarianship (CJAL) invites submissions to our special issue on labour and Canadian academic libraries. CJAL is an open access, peer-reviewed journal published by the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL).

The term “academic library” often calls to mind the image of a building—but a building is merely an empty space. So what makes a library what it is?

We—library workers—make libraries. Human beings and their labour are behind everything a library is and everything that it does. In this special issue we invite perspectives that emphasize the experiences of academic library workers, the conditions in which we work, the forces that are changing those working conditions, and ways in which we can continue to strive for improved work environments. We particularly wish to speak to the context of labour in Canadian academic libraries, recognizing that much existing scholarship focuses on the unique context of the United States.

Authors interested in participating are asked to submit a proposal (maximum 800 words plus bibliography) as an email attachment (Word document or PDF) to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by December 20, 2021.

For more information, please see the full CFP on the CJAL website<> or in the attached PDF.
