I am seeking contributors for a volume in the Dictionary of Literary
Biography series with the working title _North American University
Presses_. Entries will range in length from 3000-8000 words, and offer
a chronological overview of the history of each press, discuss the
press's significance, editorial emphases, and current publishing
activities. Contributors receive a small honorarium and a copy of the
volume. The deadline for submission of completed entries is 1 November

See for a sample entry and DLB style
guidelines, or consult your library's reference department for examples
of previous volumes in the series. (The volumes entitled _British
Literary Publishing Houses_ and _American Literary Publishing Houses_
are relevant examples for this particular project.) For a list of
available publishers and essay lengths, or for general inquiries,

Digital Scholarship, Indiana University Libraries, Main Library E651,
