General Information: Library Hi Tech News

General Information: Library Hi Tech News

Consider writing up reports on the conferences you attend, for potential publication in "Library Hi Tech News" , which specializes in detailed reports of conferences which cover new library technologies and applications.

“Library Hi Tech News” is a paper and electronic journal published 10 times per annum. Its scope includes, but is not limited to:
• wireless in libraries
• extended applications for library OPACs
• staffing and training for technology
• standards for technology
• distance education technology
• IT strategic planning in libraries and information services
• Web technologies in information services
• relevant professional development opportunities and resources
• vendor products and services.

It also publishes profiles of libraries' systems (in the "around the world" column) and short feature articles. LHTN is distributed to over 1,200 libraries, has short lead times, and prefers to leave publication of formal research-based articles to its sister Emerald journals so it can concentrate on stories, reports, news, opinion and commentary.

Manuscripts should generally be between 1,000 and 3,000 words in length, typed with wide margins and double spacing. Three copies or an e-mail attached file should be sent to the Editors, along with a brief biographical note, an abstract of 100-150 words, a short title and suggested keywords:
