Explore our library & information sciences journals & books
Welcome to our home for library & information sciences research. This page is designed to help authors find a home for their work and to help librarians identify suitable eJournal and eBook collections for their researchers.
Our research covers all aspects of library & information sciences such as academic librarianship, archives and records, classification and indexing, collection and curation, data analysis, dissemination, educational technologies, information architecture, intellectual freedom, knowledge organisation, metadata and taxonomies, online communities and data use, and more.
This subject area is aligned with Quality education for all, one of four interdisciplinary goals, each of which is aligned to multiple SDGs so we can ensure that the research we publish can fully play its part in solving significant global challenges.
