CLRC-area special collections professionals may be interested in the following opportunity to get involved in scholarly publishing, from our colleagues in Buffalo.

The Reading Room: A Journal of Special Collections, a new open-access journal is currently seeking peer-reviewers.

The Reading Room is a scholarly journal committed to providing current research and relevant discussion of practices in a special collections library setting. The Reading Room will publish peer-reviewed articles from practitioners and students involved with special collections in museums, historical societies, corporate environments, galleries, public libraries, and academic libraries.

The journal features single-blind, peer-reviewed research articles and case studies related to all aspects of current special collections work, including, but not limited to exhibits, outreach, mentorship, donor relations, teaching, reference, technical and metadata skills, social media, “Lone Arrangers”, management and digital humanities.

If you’d like to sign up to be a peer-reviewer, or have any questions on the process, please email

For more information, please visit the journal’s website.
