- Provides a publication venue for those manuscripts that are typically longer than most journal articles but shorter than most books
- Encourages the presentation of thoughtful pieces that integrate theory and practice
- Brings to light excellent scholarship that strengthens and reinforces the base of knowledge library administrators have on hand
- Seeks to develop a body of research literature that contributes to the base of organizational theory on which library administrators rely

The series offers an eclectic mix of timely, thought-provoking articles, bringing together national and global studies and conveying the kind of research which current library managers and researchers need, mixing theory with a good dose of pragmatism.
