The Pakistan Library and Information Science Journal (PLISJ), a quarterly publication of the Library Promotion Bureau (LPB), Karachi, has continued smooth sailing in its journey of the 49th year as the July-September 2018 issue (Volume 49, Number 3) has arrived once more at the designated time.
The PLISJ, hailed as one of the leading research journals of the country, has remained successful in bringing out four issues every year since its inaugural publication about half a century ago.
The LPB, a non-governmental body of library scientists, is credited to have published the quarterly journal as well as other books related to the profession on self-help basis for more than five decades now.
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 been chiefly responsible in keeping both the entities alive despite the lack of support from the various stakeholders of the profession.
The July-September 2018 issue of the PLISJ, as usual, is rich in content, with its title looking particularly attractive in the combination of red and golden colors. Between the covers, there are contributions from eminent library scientists and scholars from different parts of the country as well as abroad.
