Library leader Ken Haycock highly recommends <em>Governing</em>, saying that "We need to read and reflect but also contribute to these important publications." Haycock points out that public librarians have much to gain by writing for such publications "to ensure that their celebrations and concerns are front and center with those who make decisions affecting their future."[11. "Governing: Connecting Leaders," Ken Haycock &amp; Associates Inc Blog, April 4, 2011, <a href="http://kenhaycock.com/governing-connecting-leaders/">http://kenhaycock.com/governing-connecting-leaders/</a>] <a title="Ken Haycock Blog Health Information Literacy" href="http://www.kenhaycock.com/index.php/Ken-s-Blog/Entry/great-opportunity-for-leadership.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Health information literacy</a> is just one of many potential topics mentioned. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> <em>Governing</em> has a print circulation of approximately 85,000.[12. "<a href="http://www.governing.com/about">About Governing</a>."] The website benefits from 9.9 million annual page views, including 5.3 million unique visitors; 15,000 Twitter followers; and 80,000 email newsletter subscribers.[13. "Print &amp; Online Audience," eRepublic.com, accessed September 28, 2016, <a href="http://media.navigatored.com/documents/gov-print-brochure.pdf">http://media.navigatored.com/documents/gov-print-brochure.pdf</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> Audience is American, and the text is written in English. <strong>Reader characteristics: </strong><em>Governing</em> reaches "the most comprehensive network of state and local decision makers in government today."[14. "<a href="http://media.navigatored.com/documents/gov-print-brochure.pdf">Print &amp; Online Audience</a>."] These include: "executive and command, senior agency leadership, and elected and policy official(s)."[15. "<a href="http://media.navigatored.com/documents/gov-print-brochure.pdf">Print &amp; Online Audience</a>."] <strong>Reader knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Knowledge of specialized LIS subject matter will be scant. LIS jargon should be kept to a minimum. This is a well-educated, intelligent, and influential audience who would be interested in library issues pertaining to policy and government in local or state jurisdictions. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Readers of this journal represent all levels of government and hold positions in management, as elected or appointed officials, or staff."[16. "<a href="http://media.navigatored.com/documents/gov-print-brochure.pdf">Print &amp; Online Audience</a>."] An audience of decision-makers such as these provides an excellent opportunity for an LIS author to not only further his/her career, but to possibly influence real change for local or state libraries. <strong>Last updated:</strong> September 28, 2016 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
