About Library Student Journal

Library Student Journal was founded in 2006 by Masters students in the Department of Library and Information Studies at the University at Buffalo. Its authors, readers, and editorial board members include future Library and Information Science (LIS) practitioners around the world. We publish papers on topics of interest to the LIS field as broadly defined.

LSJ is divided into four sections:

  1. Articles - peer-reviewed research and literature reviews
  2. Essay - less-formal papers of a personal or informational nature
  3. Editorials - opinion pieces of any length
  4. Reviews - reviews of recently published or commonly used LIS books

We also maintain an Editors' Blog to keep you updated on developments in the field, and host a Community Forum as a place for readers to ask questions of each other and discuss topics of current relevance.
