The articles do tend to be long-ish and are written in an academic style, which may be off-putting to some. But, even just glancing over the table of contents and article abstracts of the current issues (two issues have been published so far - the planned schedule is two issues per year) can give you a sense of some of the issues being considered and studied. For example:
- Trends in Service Delivery: Examples From Rural and Small Town Canada, 1998 to 2005
- Communications & Capacity Building: Exploring Clues from the Literature For Rural Community Development
- Community Services and Resources for Depressed Women in Two Rural Regions of Nova Scotia
This journal will be a good tool in helping us see where the local library can have a role in rural commuity development.
