Library Juice Press is my favorite library-related publishing house, hands down. To make a good thing even better, Brooklyn librarian Emily Drabinski is currently editing a series on gender and sexuality in librarianship. Below are a few examples of possible subjects gleaned from the LJP site:
- Queer and feminist approaches to traditional library topics including classification, pedagogy, collection development
- Works that address gender and sexuality issues in conjunction with other articulations of difference including race, class, nationality, etc.
- Practical approaches to developing community-based GLBTQ collections
- Materials addressing library needs of specific populations, e.g., GLBTQ youth, elders, etc.
I’m especially looking forward to the fall 2011 publication of Documenting Feminist Activism by Lyz Bly and Kelly Wooten.
LJP invites writers to submit queries, proposals, and manuscripts to Emily Drabinski, emily.drabinskigmail.com.
I definitely dream of writing for this series myself someday!
