Among the various circulating collections here at the Arkansas State Library is the Library Science collection. With a continually updated collection of almost 4000 books and subject-specific journals, we have books on just about any library-related topic you can think of, be it reader's advisory, disaster preparedness and recovery, reference training and advice, or metadata for librarians. Since Arkansas does not currently have an accredited library science program, it is probably the best collection of library-related materials in the state. And they are all available to be checked out, as long as you have a Arkansas State Library card. If you are not in the Little Rock area, you may also be able to request items through Interlibrary Loan.
For a list of the resources that are available, visit our catalog and do a power search, selecting Library Science from the drop-down menu next to the category "Type."
For information about our library card policies, visit the Circulation Loan Policies page of our website.
If you are interested in Interlibrary Loan, please check out their page on our website to see if you are eligible to request items, and to use the online request form.
If you have any further questions, send us an email using our Ask a Librarian form or give us a call at (501) 682-2053.
