Information, Community, Policy
The Library Quarterly (LQ) is an international journal dedicated to scholarship about libraries as organizations that connect their communities to information. The journal publishes research that explores the changing roles of libraries as they pertain to the growing influence of information in policymaking, equity, access, inclusion, human rights, and other societal issues.
From its inception in 1931, LQ has featured reports of research, evaluative essays, and thoughtful reviews of resources from library and information science and other fields. The journal embraces a wide array of original research perspectives, approaches, and types of analysis, making it the journal best positioned to chronicle the evolution of libraries and the related intersections of information, community, and policy.
