About the Journal (from Haworth Press):

The Journal of Business & Finance Librarianship is an innovative quarterly journal that provides you with useful articles about the creation, organization, dissemination, retrieval, and use of business information. This refereed journal covers the business information needs of special libraries, academic libraries, and public libraries, as well as information services and centers outside of the traditional library setting. You'll find that the journal is international in scope, reflecting the multinational and international scope of the business community today.
