New Library Student Journal Online

Library students from around the world now have their own journal to publish scholarly material. Library Student Journal, which went live in September is an open access journal with peer reviewed articles.

"Our goal with Library Student Journal is to provide a forum for discussion of current Library and Information Science education issues and to publish the best student papers in the field", states Editor Eli Guinnee, an MLS Candidate at Department of Library and Information Studies, SUNY Buffalo.

I browsed the first issue and the article "Babies and libraries:serving the youngest patrons of a community" caught my attention. Opening the library doors for the very little ones is important. At Brooklyn Public Library where I work we have a wonderful toddler programs and some of them are quite popular. In fact, a regular Babies and Books program ( birth – 18 months) at Clinton Hill branch draws between 30 -40 caregivers and mothers every week.
