CULS membership through KLA


CULS-L - is a mailing list for members of the College and Universities Libraries Section of the Kansas Library Association. Although the list is designed to serve the membership of CULS, others are welcome to join if they wish to keep abreast of the activities of our organization and academic libraries in Kansas.



CULS sponsors a Two-day fall conference each year and one or more program meetings at the Tri-Conference each spring.

CULS was organized at the 1942 Annual Conference and affiliated with KLA in 1948. First called Round Table, it became College and Reference Section, College and Research Section, and beginning in 1968, College and University Libraries Section.

New Issue of CULS Proceedings

Fellow Librarians:

I’m pleased to announce the publication of a new issue of CULS Proceedings. I am also excited about a few important modifications we have made to the journal in recent months. As you will notice, we have developed a new website and submission management system with our partners at New Prairie Press. Along with this change, we entered into a publication agreement with EBSCO that will allow us to make a full text version of CULS Proceedings available through the database provider.

In keeping with the 2013 KLA conference theme “Together We Are Stronger,” we have also decided to alter the scope of CULS Proceedings by accepting submissions from those librarians working outside of academia who present at KLA or CULS and whose works demonstrate a connection to higher education. Given this inclusiveness and the fact that we have begun accepting submissions from the academic track of the KLA conference, we are also moving CULS Proceedings away from a single annual volume to a volume and issue format. We will now publish two issues per year, with each issue being tied to either the KLA or CULS conference, and present them within a single volume.
