The first journal to specifically address public service issues, Public Services Quarterly focuses on practical ways to make your library more useful to the campus community, to off-campus students, and to the community at large. Though it concentrates on academic libraries, the journal also includes discussion and research of public library programs. This peer-reviewed journal serves as a forum for new initiatives to expand and improve library services. It tracks changing patterns in organizational and managerial structures. From planning issues to publicity campaigns, Public Services Quarterly suggests new outreach activities to raise the library's profile in the community. It provides case studies of successful programs in different areas, including user education, interlibrary loan and other resource-sharing services, application of technology to public services, and improving access to digitized and electronic collections. Public Services Quarterly presents strategies for library outreach, including: library instruction and information literacy programs; programming for diverse populations; removing barriers to access; institutional cooperation to share materials; usability testing of resources developed by the library; ensuring accessibility of materials to disabled students; innovations in reference and information service delivery. As the need to physically come to the library for information has decreased, many users have assumed they can do without libraries. This exciting journal helps you stay connected to the community with the latest innovations in user education, accessibility, and technology.
