Vol. 23 No. 2 (2019): Information Needs for Refugees and Sustainable Development Goals

Welcome to the latest issue of World Libraries journal, where we explore the most pressing issues and challenges facing libraries and information science today. In this issue, we focus on the themes of "Information Needs for Refugees" and "Sustainable Development Goals."

The first paper, "Syrian Refugees and Paucity of Information," explores the information needs of Syrian refugees and the challenges they face in accessing the information they need. The authors examine the current state of information provision for Syrian refugees and highlight the urgent need for improved information services for this population.

The second paper, "Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG): Interrogating the Situation in Osun State, Nigeria," examines the role of libraries in achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The authors analyze the current situation in Osun State, Nigeria, and explore the ways in which libraries can support the achievement of the SDGs in this region.

These papers provide valuable insights into the ways in which libraries can support the information needs of refugees and contribute to sustainable development. They highlight the important role that libraries can play in addressing some of the most pressing issues facing our world today. We hope that this issue will inspire further research and action in the field of library and information science.

Thank you for joining us in this exploration of the latest trends and developments in the world of libraries. We look forward to your feedback and contributions to future issues of World Libraries journal.
