CFP - Open Source ILS

_OCLC Systems & Services: International Digital Library Perspectives_ will be publishing a special issue on open source ILS/OPAC implementations. The editor is looking for articles that articulate the planning, development, testing, systems work, marketing, etc. related to the implementation of a replacement to or alternative to a vendor ILS/OPAC. Articles can be of any length, and figures and screen shots are encouraged. OSS:IDLP is a peer-reviewed journal.

If you are interested in contributing, please send the editor your name, a short proposal of the topic, and a tentative title for the article. Deadline for proposals is November 1, 2009. Articles would be due to the editor by April 1, 2010. Any questions can be directed to the editor. Thank you.
