Special issue call for papers

2007 sees Library Review celebrate its 80th anniversary.

In the final issue of the anniversary year it is our intention to publish a selection of papers from students of library and information science from around the world. The topics of the articles can be on any aspect of modern librarianship, but what we are looking for is writing that discusses librarianship and your views on its future as the professionals who will be the backbone of the profession for the coming decades. Topics can include, but are not limited to:

Libraries, information and society
Developing information services
Hybrid and digital libraries
Information literacy and e-learning
Metadata and distributed searching
Library collaboration and resource sharing
Library history
Training and professional development
Academic and public libraries
Special libraries and collections
Information strategy and knowledge management
National and international policy.

The deadline for submission of papers is Monday the 30th April 2007, and successful submissions will be informed by Friday the 15th June 2007 for publication in late 2007. Submissions should be between 2500-4000 words, and can be emailed directly to the editor:
