Public Services Quarterly covers a broad spectrum of public service issues in academic libraries, presenting practical strategies for implementing new initiatives and research-based insights into effective practices. The
journal publishes research-based and theoretical articles as well as case studies that advance the understanding of public services, including reference and research assistance, information literacy instruction, access and delivery services, and other services to patrons. Articles may examine creative ways to use technology to assist students and faculty. Practice-based articles are thoroughly grounded in the literature and situate the work done in one library into the larger context.

Public Services Quarterly also publishes a strong selection of continuing columns. Columns aim to keep public service librarians up to date on the latest resources, from the latest professional books and important web sites, to articles on key themes in the field. Other columns illuminate the thoughts of graduate students in graduate library and information science programs worldwide; key issues in technology as they relate to public services, fresh marketing ideas, and issues confronting academic special libraries.
