  • Developing leadership and management skills
  • Library instruction and assessment
  • Academic librarian responsibilities: hiring, promotion, and tenure
  • Developing new collections or services

Those interested in discussing an article idea are encouraged to contact the Editors at nmrtendnotesjournal@gmail.comto determine if the proposal fits the publication’s scope.

Articles should range from 2,000 – 4,000 words and present original research, practitioner-based research, and/or case studies relevant to LIS students and new library professionals. Submissions are accepted throughout the year, but articles received by February 15, 2017  will receive guaranteed consideration for the Spring 2017 issue.

Endnotes also offers book and media reviews. Reviews range from 300 – 500 words.
