Library & Information Science Books

The library world is changing. In the face of evolving technology, shrinking library budgets, and increasing demand for instantaneous access to information. With this in mind we have delved into our back catalogue and put together a list of books which may be of interest to you.

If you are interested in submitting a book proposal or discussing a new book idea then please contact Heidi Lowther, who is the Editor responsible for commissioning new titles in the areas of Library & Information Science and Digital Humanities. Heidi can be contacted via email at

The Library Collections, Acquisitions, & Technical Services journal is seeking applicants for its Editor-in-Chief position. The Editor would start work as soon as possible. Applicants are encouraged to apply together if they prefer, as a team of Editors is acceptable.  Click here for more information


User Experience in the Library FreeBook

This FreeBook provides a clear introduction to human-centered design, ethnographic methods, information access and exchange, as well as the use of physical space in the library – all of which is in light of the User Experience (UX) in the library.
