Peer Reviewers Sought for Resources for College Libraries

Resources for College Libraries (RCL), a publication of ACRL’s Choice magazine and R.R. Bowker, is currently seeking academic librarians and faculty with specific subject expertise to participate in our peer review process. The RCL bibliography provides a list of titles that are essential for undergraduate study.

We seek peer referees in the following areas:

- Classics

- Philosophy

- Religion

….and additional arts + humanities disciplines

Referees will be responsible for evaluating the RCL subject’s bibliographic content, both qualitatively and quantitatively, and its taxonomic structure. All referee work is scheduled for completion by August 15, 2011. This is a one-time peer review commitment and the review should only require 2-3 days time in total. Referees will receive temporary access to the online RCLweb database during July and August to complete the review.

Please consider submitting your name to participate in this important professional service opportunity. Preference will be given to those with experience in teaching and/or collection development in the subject area. To volunteer as a reviewer, send an email to with your contact information, CV/resume, and a brief description of your qualifications, particularly any experience maintaining or assessing core bibliographies in the subject area.

RCL is the premier list of core print and electronic resources for academic libraries, featuring over 75,000 titles in 117 subjects that are vital for teaching and study at the undergraduate level. For more information, visit:
