Welcome to The Katharine Sharp Review, the peer-reviewed e-journal devoted to student scholarship and research within library and information science.

The Katharine Sharp Review (named after the founder of the School) exists as a journal to present articles by student authors who are concerned with topics relevant to library and information science and can consist of work that has been both prepared for coursework and through independent study. The purpose of the review is to:

  1. 1. Provide an opportunity for other students to examine work that is being performed by their peers;
  2. 2. Provide an opportunity for students to take part in the publishing process through submission of their own works; and
  3. 3. Showcase and recognize significant student effort in an academic journal.

Recognizing the breadth that library and information science encompasses, submissions may cover a wide variety of topics in the field, and be represented in many forms: research findings and their application, analysis of policies and practices within the industry, thematic textual review, to name but a few.
