Items generally include professional literature centering on the following areas: collection development, digital management, preservation, metadata and cataloging, technical services, emerging technologies, archives and records management, special collections, user access, information literacy, library information technology, library administration, and other areas of professional interest. Reports on best library practices, trends, and the future of the libraries are also included.
