This issue is a mixed bag of articles reflecting the diversity in the field of library and information science in general. The issue opens with an article by Christine Stilwell which is essentially an update of an article which appeared in the IFLA journal (Stilwell, 2007a). This article picks up on libraries and information services in South Africa as part of the wider national information system, starting with school libraries. An overview of archives, record centres and museums, nongovernmental organisations (NGOs), embassies, commercial database industry and indigenous knowledge follows. The sectors concerned with the dissemination of information and information technology are described, as well as the library and information education and training sector and the organised profession.
