2017 Editorial and Advertising Calendar

The Information Outlook Advisory Council, a group of SLA members, works with the editor of Information Outlook to develop an annual calendar of editorial themes. In addition to theme articles, each issue of Information Outlook contains an interview with an SLA member as well as columns about copyright, technology, research, and other topics of interest to librarians and information professionals.

If you’d like to write an article about a theme topic or any other issue of interest to information professionals, send a brief outline or abstract to Stuart Hales. To learn more about writing for Information Outlook, read the guidelines. To advertise in Information Outlook, contact Bill Sheehan.
