Mark Shelton named C&RL Book Review Editor

Mark Shelton of Harvard University has been appointed to the post of Book Review Editor of College & Research Libraries (C&RL), the scholarly research journal of ACRL. Shelton will serve a three-year term as Book Review Editor beginning immediately.

C&RL remains committed to traditional forms of scholarly communication even as it continues to explore new forms,” said C&RL Editor-in-Chief Scott Walter of DePaul University. “The book review has a long tradition as a ‘recommender system’ among librarians and scholars. We look forward to working with Mark Shelton to explore the place of the scholarly book review as our journal continues to evolve, and also to look for new opportunities to integrate review content into our emergent digital platforms and social media programs.”

“After many years of writing reviews and benefiting from them professionally, I look forward to serving C&RL and the readers of the journal,” Shelton added. “I am also looking forward to connecting with current and new reviewers as we together provide this valuable resource to our professional colleagues.”

Currently head of collection development at Harvard’s Gutman Library, Shelton brings more than 17 years of academic library leadership experience to the position, including extensive knowledge of collection development, acquisitions and licensing. Shelton has written numerous book reviews for C&RL and Collection Building, in addition to serving as a library advisory board member for a variety of publishers.

C&RL Forum: Mapping Library Contributions to Campus Internationalization

C&RL Forum: Mapping Library Contributions to Campus Internationalization

Will air live Wednesday, July 23, 2014, 1:00pm to 2:00pm Central Time

REGISTER in advance or VIEW live

Campus internationalization can be defined as “broadly referring to institutional efforts to integrate an international, global and/or intercultural dimension into the teaching, research or services function.”¹  How do academic libraries contribute to campus internationalization efforts? How do library internationalization efforts differ from or reflect campus internationalization efforts?  What services do libraries offer that support internationalization and what library organizational structures are most conducive to building these services? What are areas for growth? Join College & Research Libraries for a live panel conversation on library internationalization efforts. The panelists will discuss their C&RL pre-print study “Mapping Library Contributions to Campus Internationalization” and share ideas for both administrators and front-line librarians working to build these services.
