The study, published by the Public Library Quarterly, looks at journal-based public library research literature. It looks at publications that span the domain of public library research – including the public services provided by the library to its range of users, the technical and behind-the-scenes services provided by the library, managing and maintaining the physical plant and related infrastructure, managing and developing staff and budgets, working with local and national policymakers, and implementing and enforcing policy, law, ethics, and best practices, in addition to the history of specific public library facilities, public libraries in general, and factors affecting them.
