Urban Library Journal invites submissions in broad areas such as public higher education, urban studies, multiculturalism, library and educational services to immigrants, preservation of public higher education, and universal access to World Wide Web resources.

  *   Intentional design / “library as space” in an urban setting
  *   Physical and/or virtual accessibility issues
  *   Open education resources in urban systems
  *   Innovative collaboration between academic departments, other branches, or community partnerships
  *   More!
