Library Resources & Technical Services (LRTS) was the official journal of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) from 1957 to 2020. In September 2020, it became a publication of Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures. LRTS is a peer-reviewed journal that takes a critical approach to the questions and challenges facing librarians and libraries with regard to:

  • Collections
  • Scholarly communication
  • Preservation (including digitization)
  • Acquisitions (including licensing and economic aspects of acquisitions)
  • Continuing resources
  • Cataloging (including descriptive metadata, authority control, subject analysis, and classification)

LRTS publishes both research papers and thoughtful explorations of operational issues that have value and implications for other libraries. In addition, LRTS publishes editorials, book reviews, letters to the editor, and the annual report of the president of Core.
