Special issue of Library Trends

There is a special issue of Library Trends (Volume 61, Number 3, Winter 2013: a priced publication) on the theme of Research Into Practice, marking the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Information School (iSchool) at the University of Sheffield. This is my department, so I'm mentioning it even though it isn't focusing on information literacy.
