As acquisitions editor I reach out to individuals who have done a presentation, taught a course, written a book or article, or done a poster session related to library technology. I work with the author or editor to develop the project and suggest additional authors if the lead author is having trouble pulling together a table of contents. The book proposal (on a standard form) goes to Charles with my recommendation. Charles calls an editorial board meeting and reviews the guide proposals. He then works out a contract with the author and gets an outside review of the proposals. This is where my job ends.
