This special issue of the Journal of New Librarianship centers on the framing of a Knowledge School. More than a branding tool, this is being used by the University of South Carolina School of Library and Information Science as a way of coming to terms with what library and information science as a field is and should be. This special issue is an invitation for other academics and practitioners to join the conversation.
