Call for chapter proposals: Disciplinary Applications of Information Literacy Threshold Concepts

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) has a call for chapter proposals for a book: Disciplinary Applications of Information Literacy Threshold Concepts. The proposal submission deadline is March 29, 2016. "Chapters will describe contributors’ experiences with negotiating information literacy threshold concepts and provide suggestions for addressing a threshold concept within a specific discipline. It is not a requirement that authors have extensive experience with threshold concepts, but authors must be willing to engage in meaningful reflection about how an information literacy threshold concept can impact their work as librarians." "This book is designed for academic librarians who want to increase their understanding of threshold concepts and acquire practical suggestions about how information literacy threshold concepts can be introduced, negotiated, and assessed in the context of various disciplines. The style will be academic, but with an approachable, readable tone. Each chapter should be able to be read individually for librarians interested in a particular discipline. Final chapters will be 4,000-5,000 words in length." proosals should be submitted by April 12 2016. There is more information here
