Abstract

This open journal is the result of collaborative efforts among colleagues within the field of library and information sciences. Our second issue contains more varied content than in the first. We have our first international content - a photo essay on Mobile Libraries in Portugal. We offer that essay in both English and the author’s native Portuguese. We also have articles on the use of VR headsets in information literacy instruction; 3D printing, emergency preparedness, faculty perceptions of academic social networking, library competencies, and a number of edifying book reviews.   We are committed to publishing a multitude of viewpoints, encouraging dialog, and at times, provoking our readers to think and respond.
