MLA News Technology — writing opportunity

November 26, 2007

Here’s a call for authors that cites distance ed as a recent topic for this column. Have a new perspective you could provide?  Particularly good for those who work with health/medical libraries and distance learners/services.


Write an article for the MLA News Technology column in 2008! Writing provides a great opportunity to either share expertise you already have or delve into a topic you’ve been wanting to learn about.

Your column can be a topic review, a case study, or a report on the state of a technology. Recent topics: distance education applications, data mining, Web-based reference management tools, and library podcasts.

Some of the topics we’re interested in for 2008:

– GIS for health information
– Responsible disposal or reuse of equipment
– The InfoButton
– Anatomy of a query URL: If I run it again tomorrow, will it still work?
– Productivity software: alternatives to Office

Your own topic suggestions are, of course, welcome as well. Maximum length: 700 words.

We look forward to hearing from you.
