If you would like to become a contributor to TOAL, please send a resume or CV, and a draft of a post to, or provide a link to a piece already published. Drafts should be 500-1500 words long and pertain to academic librarianship in any discipline at any level. No book reviews, please.

Please send any spec posts to
