We are exploring for interest in a possible anthology by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers about librarians working with local historical and genealogical societies. Possible topics include:

Local societies: who are they, where are they, what do they do?
Multicultural issues in genealogy and how to deal with them
Primary sources for finding ancestors or the genealogy of ethnic groups: American Indian, African American, Jewish or others
Partnering with local societies
Preservation problems in ethnic genealogy and local history
How to initiate cooperative projects diplomatically
Case studies, what works and what doesn't:
Case studies for library and historical society collaboration
Case studies for library and genealogical society collaboration

If you can contribute a 3,000-4,000 word chapter, (with 1 or 2 co-authors or solo) please send 1-3 topics/short paragraph(s)/bio for each author of what you could contribute to: smallwood@tm.net by September 30, 2014 with GEN as subject. Complimentary copy per accepted chapter.
