We are looking for interesting articles, written as case studies or how-to pieces. We do not publish academic research papers or vendor-written articles, and CIL is not a peer-reviewed journal.

CIL's mission is to provide librarians and other information professionals with useful and insightful information about all computer-related subjects that affect their jobs. CIL does this through articles that are written by library professionals for library professionals, with a friendly, personal voice. These general technical articles should be practical and helpful for the average librarian in any sort of environment—academic, public, special, K-12, or corporate libraries. CILaims to publish articles that are interesting to read and appealing to people in many aspects of the field.
