LIBRES, an electronic, peer-reviewed, international scholarly
journal devoted to Library and Information Science Research, is
pleased to announce a call for papers for its next and forthcoming

    LIBRES: Library and Information Science Research electronic
    ISSN:  1058-6768

LIBRES is a peer-reviewed electronic journal with an editorial board
of library and information science scholars.  LIBRES communicates
scholarly thought in library and information science.  Its
publication language is English. It is published in March and

Since 1990, LIBRES has also published non refereed articles,
reports, as well as news and discussion of library and information
science research, applications, and events. It commenced  its
peer-reviewed section in 1993.  When warranted by the volume and
flow of scholarship, special and/or supplementary issues on emergent
themes will be distributed.

LIBRES now has three sections:

    1.  Research and applications  (refereed) Peer-reviewed
        scholarly articles from multiple sub- disciplines of library
        and information science on such topics as analysis,
        evaluation, applications (reports of progress ) in
        libraries, plus other information science research.
        Acting Editor:  Wendall Sullivan <wps [at] uic__edu>

    2.  News, Meetings, Essays and opinions (non-refereed)
        Editor:  Kerry Smith <kerry [at] biblio__curtin__edu__au>

    3.  Reviews of print and electronic resources
        and other discussions  (non-refereed)
        Editor:  Suzanne Milton <smilton [at] ewu__edu>

LIBRES is based on the principle of subscription to a Listserv, the
members of which, when informed of issue information, retrieve
articles by email. An ftp archive is also maintained.

With the rise of the Web and its potential for 'rich' content, the
Libres web-sites have grown in importance and are now a favoured
means of access. The editors particularly encourage the use of
web-based technology in the presentation of articles.

The potential of web-based material can be seen in the March 1997
issue which included an article by Scott Seaman entitled designing
an ergonomic circulation desk:  a case study, and featured embedded
video clips.

News on upcoming international conferences is now entirely web based
due to the need to continually update the information.  This
information can be found at

You are invited to make a contribution to LIBRES.

Please contact the Editor-in-Chief,  Kerry Smith, email
<kerry [at] biblio__curtin__edu__au> if you require further information.
