Calling all support staff!

The Fall 2014 OLA Quarterly seeks submissions for its upcoming issue, "The Wide World of Support Staff."

Libraries and information organizations rely on the unique talents of support staff, whose roles encompass a world of positions, tasks and responsibilities, and diverse contributions.

We want to hear from you! Tell us about your experiences. What does "support staff" mean at your organization? What kind of professional development opportunities have you experienced? What is the biggest misconception about support staff? How about an amazing team project or personal accomplishments you've taken on recently? What is your favorite customer service story? What does the future look like for support staff in libraries and information centers? Share your joys, challenges, and stories with the library community!

Contact us NOW to contribute!
