C&RL News Seeks Cover Art

C&RL News is looking for images from library collections to feature on upcoming covers. If you have items in your collections that you think would make attractive C&RL News covers, we would love to see them. To submit images (or image collections), send URLs for web-based images or images directly as attachments to David Free at dfree@ala.org. Please include a brief description of the item and your collection. Images selected to appear as C&RL News covers will require a high-resolution electronic image (300 dpi or higher) to be submitted prior to the publication date. Complete guidelines for the submission of cover illustrations are available on the C&RL News website.
