Library Resources & Technical Services (LRTS) is the Official Journal of the Association for Library Collections Technical Services (ALCTS)
Library Resources & Technical Services (LRTS) is a peer-reviewed journal that takes a critical approach to the questions and challenges facing librarians and libraries with regard to:
- Scholarly communication
- Preservation (including digitization)
- Acquisitions (including licensing and economic aspects of acquisitions)
- Continuing resources
- Cataloging (including descriptive metadata, authority control, subject analysis, and classification)
LRTS publishes both research papers and thoughtful explorations of operational issues that have value and implications for other libraries. In addition, LRTS publishes editorials, book reviews, letters to the editor, and the annual report of the president of the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services.
If you have thoughts or ideas for papers in these areas that you would like to explore or develop further, or if you would like to encourage your colleagues to develop a topic or theme (for example, from a presentation, program or poster session) and to turn the theme into a paper, please consider contributing to LRTS yourself, or invite a colleague to consider contributing.
