Please excuse duplication.  Please forward to interested colleagues and 
other listservs.

_OCLC Systems & Services:  International Digital Library Perspectives_ 
will be publishing a special issue on open source development of digital 
tools and services.  The editor is looking for articles that articulate 
the development processes (planning, scripting, testing, marketing, 
dissemination, etc.) of various digital tools and services related to 
digital projects, grants, digitization, and collaborative and 
cooperative endeavors.  Tools and services developed to reduce 
redundancies, create efficiencies in workflow, and allow for ingesting 
or exporting of data and/or manipulation of data for users are 
especially encouraged.  Articles can be of any length, and figures and 
screen shots are encouraged. OSS: IDLP is a peer-reviewed journal.

If you are interested in contributing, please send the editor your name, 
a short proposal of the topic, and a tentative title for the article.  
Deadline for proposals is March 1, 2009.  Articles would be due to the 
editor by August 1, 2009.  Any questions can be directed to the editor.  
Thank you.
