LIS Student Publishing Opportunity

Public Services Quarterly's column, “Future Voices in Public Services,” is a forum for students in graduate library and information science programs to discuss key issues they see in academic library public services, to envision what they feel librarians in public service have to offer to academia, to tell us of their visions for the profession, or to tell us of research that is going on in library schools. We hope to provide fresh perspectives from those entering our field, in both the United States and other countries. Interested students of graduate library and information science programs are welcome to contact Miriam L. Matteson, “Future Voices” column editor, at Please note that students must be interested in ACADEMIC librarianship.
Please contact Miriam to send sample essays and more information.
