HBCU Library Alliance Success Story - Submission Guidelines

Greetings Colleagues,

I trust you’re well.  Today I’m celebrating the Preserving the Story of the HBCU Library Alliance project. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this project will document and disseminate the history and accomplishments of our unique organization. A historical document will be written and submitted to peer-reviewed journals such as Association of College and Research Libraries. Additionally, seven documents written on specific activities of select HBCU Library Alliance members, will be disseminated via journals that do not require peer review.

Dr. Shanesha Brooks-Tatum, Project Coordinator/Writer, is soliciting individual library success stories and forwards the following submission guidelines.

HBCU Library Alliance Success Story Submission Guidelines

We are excited about hearing your library’s success story!  In 350 words or less, please describe your success story.  In your description, please make sure to briefly address:
1)    The challenge faced by your library that prompted the new initiative, programming or other component of your library;
2)    What makes your library’s new program, initiative, etc. a success; and
3)    How your library defines and measures the success of this change, development, or transformation.
Please submit your success story by e-mail to and no later than Monday, August 1st.  Include your name, institution, and email address.
