International Journal of Special Libraries

ISSN 0019-0217

INSPEL is a professional journal primarily for the dissemination of papers written or proposed for publication by members of the IFLA Division of Special Libraries. The Division promotes and coordinates the work of particular relevance to the specific types of libraries or library activities in its Standing Committees for Art Libraries, Biological and Medical Sciences Libraries, Geography and Map Libraries, Government Libraries, Science and Technology Libraries and Social Science Libraries.

The Journal is directed to an international readership among librarians in government and international agencies, as well as in universities and research institutions. Librarianship is a key subject in a rapidly changing world. Improved practice will help produce economic benefits, and special attention should be given to problems concerning libraries in Developing Countries.

Articles will be drawn primarily from activities conducted within IFLA. But on occasion the Journal will publish articles on specified topics by non-IFLA contributors. Any reader interested in preparing such an article is invited to submit the paper to the Editor. Material on all aspects of librarianship will be considered eligible for publication.

The views and interpretations in articles published are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the policies of IFLA or ASpB.

Comments or brief notes responding to Journal articles are welcome and will be considered for publication to the extent that space permits.
