Abstract

At the 1926 ALA conference, M. L. Raney called for the establishment of a scholarly journal presenting studies of substantive issues in librarianship. Also in 1926, the Graduate Library School at the University of Chicago was founded. The Graduate Library School seemed to be a logical choice as the entity to publish Raney's proposed journal. ALA and many in the library field, however, did not approve of the new school's emphasis on research and scholarship. Consequently, ALA was reluctant to place a journal in the school. Finally, in 1931, the journal of discussion began publication at the Graduate Library School. The conflicts attending the start of the "Library Quarterly" show librarians' general resistance to a new kind of journal reflecting the Graduate Library School's dedication to research and scholarship.
