The <em>Gazette</em> would be of interest to LIS authors who want to provide community articles and current events to the residents of Mariposa county. The online version of the <em>Gazette</em> includes many features such as arts and entertainment, the Sheriff's Log, local sports, obituaries, classifieds, photo slideshows, video galleries, and a Mariposa scrapbook.[9.

"Mariposa Gazette," MondoTimes.com, accessed October 10, 2016, <a href="http://www.mondotimes.com/1/world/us/5/250/16326">http://www.mondotimes.com/1/world/us/5/250/16326</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> The <em>Mariposa Gazette</em> is published for the members of California's Mariposa County and surrounding areas. The newspaper is published in English.[11. "<a href="http://www.mariposagazette.com/">Mariposa Gazette</a>."] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> This publication has a local flavor, with readers expecting news and information about their local community and area. As a result, it is written for readers of all ages. Readers of this publication would have a wide range of values and attitudes towards LIS subjects. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> The readers of the <em>Mariposa Gazette</em> would not have knowledge of information science subject matters and would expect an introductory level of LIS topics to be explained without jargon. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> The <em>Mariposa Gazette</em> is a local community newspaper. The readers of this publication look for articles about Mariposa County and surrounding areas. News items, sports, home, and life are just a few of the topics covered in the publication every week. A recent issue covered topics of the CHP and safe highway driving, the local Watershed Council that is in need of volunteers, area gardeners who manage a local farmers market, a kids' day at the Farmers Market, conservation and easement issues around the area, a local resident who is a professional diver of historical ship wrecks, the local bus transportation system, the local school board issues and problems, and news about the Mariposa Museum and History Center.[12. "<a href="http://www.mariposagazette.com/">Mariposa Gazette</a>."] The future authors of this publication would be expected to cover news items of local interest. Articles about library and information services would need to be focused on the needs of the local area and residents. Future authors could also write articles on future information services and resources. <strong>Last updated: </strong>October 10, 2016 <hr /> <h4>References<strong> </strong></h4>
