(2016). base line. <em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Global Serials Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1428426335226/483555">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1428426335226/483555</a>] As members hail from across North America, authors should avoid using local terminologies or dialects, and should be tailored to a national audience. <strong>Reader characteristics</strong>: Readers are members of MAGIRT. As such, one can assume that the majority of readers are "involved in the geospatial librarianship world."[17. American Library Association. (2016). Resources. <em>American Library Association</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Resources" href="http://www.ala.org/magirt/resources">http://www.ala.org/magirt/resources</a>] <strong>Reader knowledge of LIS subject matter</strong>: Readers are generally professional librarians, so a high degree of specialized LIS knowledge can be assumed. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> The readers of <em>base line</em> are interested in professional news. Authors would want to write short articles and reports relevant to MAGIRT committee work and topics related to geospatial librarianship. Members of MAGIRT seem eager to "connect with like-minded people, to learn, or to impart...knowledge."[18. American Library Association. (2016). Resources. <em>American Library Association</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Resources" href="http://www.ala.org/magirt/resources">http://www.ala.org/magirt/resources</a>] Although the pool of readers is relatively small, the LIS author who is interested in geospatial information will find a supportive and interested readership in <em>base line</em>. <strong>Last updated</strong>: May 14, 2016 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
