PL is in Transition

The editors of Progressive Librarian are examining the current state and future form of PLG's journal following the release of our upcoming issue. New times need fresh eyes and minds in every realm of life, and the same is true of Progressive Librarian which has been in publication for the last three decades. When a new direction has been determined, we will certainly inform our readers. In the meanwhile, stay tuned for Issue 47, currently in the works, and be sure to keep abreast of the ideas, analysis, and narratives coming from those who keep a critical eye on librarianship. Venues for critical views within the profession can be found at: In the Library With a Lead Pipe; Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies; and Journal of Radical Librarianship.
