Advancement in Library Information Science (ALIS) Newsletter
Volume 1, Issue 1

 Mirela Roncevic, Director of Library Relations, Editor-in-Chief, “Advances in Library Information Science” Book Series, IGI Global

Welcome to the first issue of IGI Global’s ALIS newsletter. Unlike similar newsletters—which serve as information vehicles keeping librarians in the know about what’s on the publishing horizon—ours is a value-added tool that gives a pre-publication, no-strings-attached glimpse into our library and information science content. The eight articles featured here in abbreviated form touch on the most pressing issues surrounding the discoverability of reference content, including the changing face of information literacy and user behavior, shifting roles for publishers, and hidden new opportunities for reference librarians.
