    "Biz of Digital" is a column in Against the Grain ( It features discussions by working librarians on digital collections, digital repositories, digital scholarship, data services, and technology. Its audience is librarians in all types of libraries and vendors of products, services, and systems that support library digital services. Its focus is on current practices, techniques, processes, and information on events in the field. Against the Grain is a down-to-earth, practice-orientated library journal.

    Ideas for upcoming "Biz of Digital" articles include:

    •  Working collaboratively with faculty working on digital humanities projects
    • Digital consulting services (on digital project planning, project lifecycle management, standards and design, information architecture, platforms and tools, metadata and linked data, digital experience, usability studies, etc.)
    • Supporting text analysis and mining
    • Supporting digital mapping
    • Making digital scholarship platforms such as Omeka and Open Journal System available to the community

    Feel free to choose any of these topics, or one of your own. Theoretical articles, research reports, "how-to" articles, case studies, literature reviews and conceptual or opinion pieces are welcome. Article length should be approximately 1200-1500 words (4-5 pages, double-spaced).

    Contributions may be written by individuals or co-authored.
