To complement our newsletters, blogs and forums, Capita produces a free library-focused quarterly magazine called Panlibus.

Panlibus Magazine brings you the latest news from the library sector. Features include thought-leadership articles from prominent figures in the library industry, reports on projects currently being undertaken by libraries and other library-focused industries, and reviews of events.
