  • Editorial Advisory Group

The role of the editorial advisory group is to curate and commission content and to make sure that it’s got the right amount of detail to be useful to the KLS community.

Current membership of the group is a mix of network and KLS HEE staff.

Membership is open to any member of the network interested in anything to do with resource discovery.  Please email us if you are interested in joining the group. 

 

  • Style guidelines

This is not a technical bulletin.

Contributors should aim to write in an accessible style, free of jargon and with as few acronyms as possible.

The aim is to share resources that will make library staff and users life easier.

For any article you offer, please think about not only what you want your readers to know but why. 

Contributors should explain:

  • What is it?
  • What does it do?
  • Who it is for?
  • Why the rest of the network should be interested?

Contributions should not exceed 150 words.

You can include links to other web pages if necessary. 

Images

Images can be accepted. 

One image per article. 

Maximum size, 2MB, in JPEG format. 

Uploading documents. 

We are not able to load documents as attachments to the publication. 

If there is a Word, PDF, PowerPoint etc. document you want to share, please provide a link (e.g. a downloadabe PDF)
