Issue 66:2 of Tennessee Libraries is now available online at http://www.tnla.org/?page=TL66_2.

Though not by design (at least, I don’t think so), this issue features two articles about projects at the University of Tennessee at Martin. In an article based on their recent presentation at the TLA annual conference, Sara Rachels, Jim Nance, and Heidi Busch describe a collection development project stemming from participation in the annual UT Martin Civil Rights Conference. Adam Clemons, Jim Nance, and Drew Ballinger discuss a low-tech project for collecting library user feedback. 

 David Ratledge reflects on the changing role of systems librarians in the technology column. Also, this issue includes a tribute to the late Larry Romans written by TLA President Susan Jennings. The book reviews section, edited by Wendy Doucette, rounds out the issue with reviews of seven fiction, popular non-fiction, and academic press books with Tennessee connections. 

If you presented at the TLA Conference in April and would like to submit a related manuscript, we would be happy to consider it for inclusion in the September issue. Or, if you are interested in submitting a manuscript to Tennessee Libraries or in writing a book review for a future issue, please see the links below. The Call for Papers page includes submission deadlines for 2016. 

Thank you,
