page must be submitted as a separate word document, and should include the name
of author, institutional affiliation, mailing address, telephone number, and
email address. Articles presented at a conference must include the name, place,
and date of the conference. The body of a manuscript must be preceded by a

bibliographies. Each illustration or table should be numbered and have a brief
caption. JLIS follows the Manual of the American Psychological
Association for reference and bibliography style. Consult recent issues of JLIS
as a guide to format.
