Spring issue of our journal out now – focus on sound and vision

Editorial by Clare Brown

Listen? Can you hear anything? It’s the sound of the library! The theme of this edition of the MMIT Journal is primarily ‘sound’. The intention was to give our varied contributors a broad brief, with a free rein to explore what is important to them, their organisations, and the wider information sharing environment. The imaginative responses around audio and visual communication have been a revelation and I hope you will as inspired by these pieces as I have been.
