Managing Special Libraries and Innovative Services Call for Papers

Submission due: 31 December 2016
This special issue of the academic journal Library Management could deal with, but not limited to, the following interrelated library management issues:
  • Societies and economies around the world will benefit by the development of special Libraries and/or thematically focused information services within broader purpose Libraries such as the public Libraries.
  • Library management interventions are required in order to deal with the vulnerability in societies around the world which is rapidly increasing due to the deepening economic crisis as well as the immigration/refugee humanitarian crisis.
  • Studies for the skills and the knowledge of the Librarians and Information Professionals that will manage and develop these special Libraries. 
Each of these could be assessed in the context of Digital Disruption and its impacts on the total environment.
These topics are examples only and you as an author should choose what you would like to explore.  It is such an important and crucial issue for all of us.
