Call for proposals: emergent literacies in academic libraries

The (priced) journal Reference Services Review is seeking authors to write on the theme of emergent literacies in academic libraries. "Articles in this issue will explore emergent literacies, intersections of multiple literacies, and ideas around the language used to describe, implement, and assess these literacies. We are interested in innovative interpretations and intersectional research around ideas, theory, and practice." The deadline for abstracts proposing an article is October 15 2017. Send proposals/abstracts or inquiries to both: Tammy Ivins (ivinst@uncw.edu) and Sylvia Tag (sylvia.tag@wwu.edu). There is more info in a pdf attached to the discussion post: http://lists.ala.org/sympa/arc/ili-l/2017-10/msg00041.html (bizarrely, there doesn't seem to be a call for papers on the journal's website)
