AbstractThis special issue of SAJLIS (73/2), focusing largely on LIS research in South Africa, is dedicated to this year's celebration of LIASA's 10th Anniversary, coinciding with our hosting of WLIC / 73rd IFLA General Conference, the most prestigious event on the Library and Information calendar in the world, in Africa for the second time, since being held in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1984. We are proud to note that Ms Ellen Tise, LIASA's first President, has been elected IFLA's President for 2009. Also, that South Africa won the bid to host the 13th International Conference of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI) in Durban.
