LES-L Discussion List


LES-L is the official list of ACRL's Literatures in English Section. It welcomes discussion on issues such as collection development, reference work, bibliographic and full-text databases, user education, cataloging, preservation, and scholarly communication. The only stipulation is that the focus of the discussion be germane to librarians working with literature written in English from around the world.
