Call for Submissions and Reviews - Catholic Library World

Article submissions are being accepted on an ongoing basis for upcoming issues of Catholic Library World, and prospective book reviewers with appropriate qualifications are asked to contact the editor.

Catholic Library World is the official journal of the Catholic Library Association. Established in 1929, CLW is a refereed association journal that focuses on all aspects of librarianship, especially as it relates to Catholicism and Catholic Studies. CLW articles are intended for an audience that is interested in the broad role and impact of various types of libraries, including, but not limited to academic, public, theological, parish and church libraries, and school libraries.

The preferred method for submitting manuscripts is as a word-processed attachment in e-mail. Author's full name, affiliation, and e-mail address must accompany any manuscript submission.

Articles should provide something new to the existing literature. The word count should be 3500- 5000 words and should adhere to The Chicago Manual of Style (humanities is preferred). The style should be accessible and well-documented. 

The journal publishes 100 short book reviews per issue, including reviews of books in library sciences, the humanities (particularly theology and spirituality), social sciences, children's books and young adult literature.
