About Colorado Libraries


Colorado Libraries is a quarterly publication of the Colorado Association of Libraries (CAL). Colorado Libraries has been published continuously since 1975; however, print publication ceased in 2009 due to the high cost of creating print copies of the journal. Beginning in 2010 with issue 35, the journal assumed an open access, online format. Full text is available for volumes 23 (1997) through 34 (2008) are available in WilsonWeb's Library Literature and Information Science Full Text, and indexing is available from 1984 on.

Each quarterly issue consists of approximately 6-8 articles centered on a current theme; themes are chosen by the CAL Communications Committee in advance. A guest editor (or a pair of guest editors) solicit content from all types of libraries pertaining to the theme. Authors retain full copyrights of their contributions.

Peer Review

While all journal content undergoes a stringent editorial process to ensure a high quality publication, only the "Academic Corner" is peer-reviewed. The peer review process is double blind with two reviewers.

Publishing Platform

This site was created with the Drupal content management system (CMS) and uses the E-Journal module. This module is modeled after Open Journal Systems publishing platform, which is open source like Drupal.
