Library Review publishes comprehensive papers by internationally acknowledged experts in the field of library and information management, offering technical and scholarly analysis alongside lively, topical discussions of current and future trends. It draws contributions from all over the world to give a genuinely international look at the current scene.

Key benefits

In addition, a substantial reviews section offers in-depth appraisal of important books on library and information management.
