CARIBBEAN LIBRARY JOURNAL: A Publication of the UWI University Libraries
From the Editorial
For Sir Derek Walcott. Thank you for the inspiration!
When I first started this editorial, Derek Walcott was alive and I was working with the theme Small is Beautiful, Small is Powerful particularly as this issue has a strong connection to St. Lucia. Walcott’s passing is a loss to all of the Caribbean and I want to take a paragraph or two of the editorial to reflect on his work and what this means for a Caribbean library journal. So permit me the space to write this editorial in 2 parts.
The Caribbean Library Journal (CLJ) is an online open access peer reviewed journal published by The University of the West Indies. This medium provides a forum for information professionals in the Caribbean and those who work with Caribbean materials globally to discuss their work, share ideas and experiences. The CLJ is published annually and contributors are invited to submit new scholarly works such as academic essays, book reviews and research reports.The Editors are also interested in publications which incorporate Web 2.0 tools, videos and other innovative pieces.
The Journal provides open access to all its contents on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports greater global exchange of knowledge. Such access facilitates increased readership and greater citation opportunities for authors.
The Journal comprises a wide selection of professionals from the Campuses of The University of the West Indies. This Board is ably supported by a number of regional and international reviewers.
