Special issue call for papers

– Library Review

“Voices of the New Library Professionals”

2007 sees Library Review celebrate its 80th anniversary. Part of the
celebrations will encompass publications from the archives of the journal
discussing different aspects of librarianship through the years the journal
has been published. In the final issue of the anniversary year it is our
intention to publish a selection of papers from students of library and
information science from around the world. The topics of the articles can
be on any aspect of modern librarianship, but what we are looking for is
writing that discusses librarianship and your views on its future as the
professionals who will be the backbone of the profession for the coming
decades. Topics can include, but are not limited to:

? Libraries, information and society
? Developing information services
? Hybrid and digital libraries
? Information literacy and e-learning
? Metadata and distributed searching
? Library collaboration and resource sharing
? Library history
? Training and professional development
? Academic and public libraries
? Special libraries and collections
? Information strategy and knowledge management
? National and international policy.

The deadline for submission of papers is Monday the 30th April 2007, and
successful submissions will be informed by Friday the 15th June 2007 for
publication in late 2007. Submissions should be between 2500-4000 words,
and can be emailed directly to the editor, David McMenemy:
