ALL Journal Editor 2014 - Call for Expressions of Interest

ALL Journal Editor 2014 - Call for Expressions of Interest

1 February, 2014 at 9:46 PM

The Australian Law Librarian is the official journal of the Australian Law Librarians' Association Ltd. Since 1993, the journal has delivered a quarterly serving of quality articles of interest to legal information professionals. The journal has an international following and is highly regarded for its topical and informative articles.

Our current editor, Marion Randall, has delivered a number of excellent journal issues covering legal research, knowledge management, engaging with technology, conference papers, national and international news and much, much more. I'd like to suggest a favourite article or two - but there have been so many amazing reads it is impossible. On behalf of the Association I would like to thank Marion for her hard work and dedication in the role of Journal Editor, and it is with sadness that I inform members of Marion's resignation from the role.

The board would now like to formally announce a call for Expressions of Interest for the role of Editor of the Australian Law Librarian journal. See here here for a position description and details of how to apply.  The closing date for applications is March 14 2014.

I'd like to encourage all members to read the EOI. If you feel this is a role you would be interested in taking on I would encourage you to submit an EOI or contact myself for further details. If you know another member who you feel would be a great applicant, please email them and encourage them to consider applying. The roll attracts a $5000 per annum honorarium, as well as offering numerous professional development and networking opportunities.

I'd also like to mention that the next issue of ALL Journal is calling for contributors. The articles may be on any topic as this is a general issue. If you are interested in submitting an article, please contact me by COB Wednesday 29th January.
