Call for papers: Library Love Stories
The IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG) and Management and Marketing Section is seeking proposals for papers to be presented at a two-hour session at the next IFLA General Conference on 24-30 August 2019 in Athens, Greece.
1. Love among users – Are some libraries more suited for people to meet and fall in love? Can libraries and librarians play a role as cultural matchmakers in the community? Can our collections help our users with their love life?
2. Love among librarians – Have you ever fallen in love with a colleague? How should managers deal with a couple in their team? How important are passion and desire in professional relationships?
3. Love between librarians and library users – Can we fall in love on both sides of a reference desk?
4. The dark side of love – How do we manage unwanted love in the library? When does it become harassment, and how do we deal with these situations?
Please find the call for papers and all its details on the conference's website.
