A week into the call for papers and we’ve already had half a dozen proposals! Must admit I was only expecting them to come in from the second week onwards as people pondered and considered the call, so it’s really pleasing to have them coming in so quick – hopefully we’ve hit a creative nerve out there!
We’ve had a lovely mix of proposals so far, including a chapter based on a series of blog posts tracking a researchers information journey; one proposing a toolkit for library waks of “discovery, disappointment and delight”; and an information fairy tale telling “a student’s journey of discovery of resources, spaces, staff and fellow students, as she travels through university life”.
The link between the strongest proposals so far is the strong focus on the users of information and their journeys of discovery. We’re really enjoying reading the proposals as they arrive, so keep them coming!
