Former SLA Publication Finds a New Home

Special Libraries, which was published by the Special Libraries Association from 1910 until its replacement by Information Outlook in 1997, is now available online thanks to an arrangement between SLA and San Jose State University.


SLA hosted Special Libraries on its Website through 2012, but discontinued that practice when it launched its new Website in 2013. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Library at San Jose State agreed last year to host Special Libraries as well as Information Outlook and certain papers presented at SLA Annual Conferences in its institutional repository, known as ScholarWorks. These materials will be made available online and accessible to the general public at no cost.

SLA will keep recent issues of Information Outlook and conference papers on its Website for approximately five years, then send them to San Jose State for archiving.
