RCL Call for Reviewers

Are you looking for a summer project that contributes to the profession while enhancing your subject skills? Resources for College Libraries (RCL), the Choice/ACRL bibliography of essential titles for undergraduate teaching and research, invites experienced subject selectors to serve as peer reviewers. We are currently seeking referees for the following Arts and Humanities subjects:

American Literature • British Literature • Classical Languages and Literatures •  Dance •  Drama and Theater •  French Language and Literature •  General Language and Literature •  Germanic Languages and Literatures •  Italian Language and Literature • Music • Other Literatures in English • Philosophy • Religion • Russian and Eastern European Languages and Literatures • Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Literatures • Visual Arts

Reviewers are tasked with assessing the subject collection comprehensively, providing recommendations for editorial improvement and constructive feedback on how well the core title selections support the college curriculum. RCL referee work can help strengthen collection development practice, inform local projects, and build subject expertise. This is a one-time professional service opportunity that can be performed remotely.

To apply, submit a current CV and a brief description of your qualifications, particularly developing or evaluating core collections and/or teaching in the subject discipline to Anne Doherty, RCL Project Editor, at adoherty@ala-choice.org. Preference will be given to those who apply by June 1, 2020. We are committed to pursuing equity and inclusion and seek reviewers with diverse backgrounds and new perspectives to the RCL work.
