CCQ call for papers: Cataloging Collaborations and Partnerships

A special issue of Cataloging & Classification Quarterly will be devoted 
to an exploration of how cataloging units or organizations have 
partnered or collaborated with others to address the changing needs of 
their customers.

The guest editor invites submissions from professionals in cataloging 
and metadata, as well as other related disciplines. Submissions by 
authors outside North America are encouraged.


Case studies, historical surveys and research studies are all of 
interest. Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:

 Collaborations with vendors or utilities

 Collaborations with other libraries or consortia

 Collaborations between public and academic library cataloging units

 Collaborative development of new systems

 Collaborative development of standards

 International collaborative efforts

 Assessment of collaborative efforts

 Advantages and disadvantages of collaboration

 Costs/benefits of collaboration
