The journal aims to further research and scholarship in the field of library and information science by way of fostering a publishing community among emerging librarians and information professionals. It provides an open forum for sharing diverse perspectives and types of work to engage students, practitioners, and scholars. Launched in Winter 2018, the journal is published by the FIMS Graduate Library and hosted by Western Libraries.
