Author Guidelines

Education Libraries is published by the Education Division of the Special Libraries Association. Its audience consists of education information professionals employed in a variety of venues, including special libraries and information centers, academic libraries, public libraries, and school libraries.

Manuscripts submitted for publication in Education Libraries should present research studies, descriptive narratives, or other thoughtful considerations of topics of interest to the education information professional. Manuscripts focusing on issues relevant to more general concerns either in the field of education or in the field of library and information science are also welcome provided they include a significant component specifically germane to education, libraries and librarianship. Education Libraries is indexed in ERIC, EBSCOhost’s Education Collection, and Library Literature. Please review our past issues for reference on the types of work we publish.Submission of Manuscripts
