Information Outlook

Information OutlookAll SLA members receive free access to Information Outlook, SLA’s online digital magazine, as a benefit of membership. Each bimonthly issue of Information Outlook contains articles on cutting-edge topics (such as data curation, content strategy, user experience, and value co-creation), columns about technology, library management, and copyright law, and news items about developments in the information environment and within SLA. A popular feature is the “SLA Member Interview,” which provides a close-up look at information professionals in different disciplines, work environments, and countries.

Current-year issues of Information Outlook are available in digital format; back issues (2009 through the most recent calendar year) are available in PDF format. To read articles published prior to 2009, contact Stuart Hales.
