      Library science – study of issues related to libraries and the information fields. This includes academic studies regarding how library resources are used and how people interact with library systems. The organization of knowledge for efficient retrieval of relevant information is also a major research goal of library science. Some of these issues were raised by the much-publicized pledge of funds for local libraries by Gates Learning Foundation (formerly the Gates Library Foundation). One commentator calculated the ongoing additional costs of supporting a $33, gift from the Gates Foundation to between $46, and $62,—30% to 40% of the library's budget.

      Since , Law Library Journal (LLJ) has been the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Association of Law rly articles on law, legal materials, and librarianship are the mainstay of the ce-oriented articles and historical records of the profession and Association are also included. Individuals pursuing a legal claim against librarians soon realize that very little can be gained financially by suing the professional--(our salaries fail to do a very good job of supporting ourselves, much less provide a windfall for patrons). They therefore seek recompense from the library, or, more accurately, from the trustees or directors.

Digital reading makes gains, but books are holding their own.
