Catalogue & Index Call for Papers – September (issue 204) 2021
For the next issue, we’re looking at the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our work with metadata.
What are the key work struggles that you have faced over the past year, and how have you attempted to handle them? Does the phrase “new ways of working” fill you with dread, or have you discovered positive aspects to remote working? Have any projects suddenly become more achievable, or swathes of work become impossible to accomplish? Have you worked on anything that has been directly connected to tackling the pandemic, or reducing the risks for the users of our resources? How have you tried to stay in touch with colleagues, formally and informally? And do you have any sense that certain changes will be here to stay?
The deadline for this issue is 31st August. Please contact the editors (Philip Keates: P.Keates@kingston.ac.uk and Martin Kelleher: email@example.com) with proposed papers, any queries, or if you want to offer a paper that does not fit into the theme mentioned. We are always happy to consider papers on topics unrelated to an issue’s theme, especially if it is the result of some research you have conducted, or a project you have been involved in. We encourage people from all sectors to contribute, and actively welcome international contributions as well. Papers can be up to 2,000 words, and we are happy to include a selection of images. Please check our guidance for contributors:
