The Southeastern Librarian

The Southeastern Librarian (SELn) is the official publication of the Southeastern Library Association (SELA). The quarterly publication seeks to publish articles, announcements, and news of professional interest to the library community in the southeast. The publication also represents a significant means for addressing the Association's research objective. Two newsletter-style issues serve as a vehicle for conducting Association business, and two issues include juried articles.

Call for Reviewers

The SELn Editorial Board solicits members to serve as volunteer reviewers. Beginning with the volume 49 Summer 1999 issue, two issues of The Southeastern Librarian will include juried articles.

We need representatives who are qualified to evaluate the content of articles so that the articles are "referred" by those with subject knowledge as well as by those with a knowledge in research methodology. As such, we are seeking individuals from all types of libraries representing a broad range of responsibilities.

These volunteer reviewers will be asked to review articles inside and outside their area of subject expertise and make a recommendation to regarding publication for Editorial Board review. The following are general criteria for reviewers:

  • Must be a member of SELA
  • Minimum of 2 years professional experience
  • Minimum of 2 published peer-reviewed publications or equivalent experience
