By bringing out the October-December 2018 issue (Volume 49, Number 4), the Pakistan Library and Information Science Journal (PLISJ), a quarterly publication of the Library Promotion Bureau (LPB), Karachi, has successfully completed 49 years of its journey.
The PLISJ, over the years, has earned recognition as being one of the leading research journals of the country which has also been hailed abroad by the library professionals.
The LPB, a non-governmental body of library scientists, has lived up to its tradition of bringing out the PLISJ in time and the latest issue has also arrived well before time.
Although the office of the bureau has been moved from Federal-B-Area to KDA Scheme 33 during the last quarter, there was no delay in the publication of the journal's latest issue which seemed quite remarkable.
The PLISJ Chief Editor, Prof Dr Ghani-ul-Akram Sabzwari, who is also the Founder President of the LPB, and the Deputy Chief Editor, Prof Dr Nasim Fatima, have continued working with their trademark passion and zeal to keep afloat both the entities despite facing numerous challenges.
The October-December 2018 issue of the PLISJ remains to be rich in content, with the graceful title making it more attractive. As in the past issues, there are contributions from eminent library scientists and scholars from different parts of the country as well as abroad between the covers.
