This edition of Library and Information History marks the journal's move to Edinburgh University Press as the publisher. The process of moving to EUP has been conducted behind-the-scenes over the last couple of years and I must pay tribute to the members of the committee of the Library History Group of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (and most particularly to Dan Gooding) for all the work that has gone into successfully completing the discussions and negotiations. We believe that this move can only be positive for the journal and that we are a ‘good fit’ with many of the other journal titles produced by Edinburgh University Press. The move to EUP also marks another significant change: the move from four editions each year to three. This will, we believe, result in more rounded editions and a better balance of content as making the flow of publications more effective and efficient for those of involved in the production of the journal. I am delighted that Dr Jill Dye has joined me as co-editor and we look forward to bringing out the future editions of the journal. I am also delighted that this first edition with EUP contains an article by one of our most distinguished previous editors, Dr Keith Manley. We hope that you, our readers and subscribers, continue to enjoy the journal and unique place that it occupies, facilitating the exploration of social and cultural history through libraries and information.
