San Jose State University School of Information. (2016). <em>Information School Alumni</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Alumni Newsletter" href="http://ischool.sjsu.edu/downloads/annualreviews/2012/Graduates%202012.pdf">http://ischool.sjsu.edu/people/information-school-alumni</a>] The SJSU iSchool 2012 annual review shows 655 graduates for the 2011-2012 school year, which suggests a considerable possible audience.[15. San Jose State University School of Information. (2016). <em>SLIS Graduates, Academic Year 2011-2012</em>. Retrieved from <a title="2010 Annual Review" href="http://ischool.sjsu.edu/downloads/annualreviews/2012/Graduates%202012.pdf" target="_blank">https://slisweb.sjsu.edu/downloads/annualreviews/2010/graduates2010.pdf</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations</strong>: The university is based in San Jose, California, but the audience is international. Given that the readers are all graduates of an English-language LIS program, it can be assumed the readers have a strong grasp of the English language and a clear understanding of LIS terminology.[16. San Jose State University School of Information. (2016). <em>Information School Alumni</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Alumni Newsletter" href="http://ischool.sjsu.edu/people/information-school-alumni">http://ischool.sjsu.edu/people/information-school-alumni</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics</strong>: According to the 2012 annual review published by the SJSU SLIS, students attend online from 45 states and 17 countries, suggesting a global community. Also, given the fact that the entire program is presented online, readers can be expected to have a high level of comfort with technology.[17. San Jose State University School of Information. (2016). <em>School of Library and Information Science Annual Review</em>. Retrieved from <a title="2010 Annual Review" href="http://ischool.sjsu.edu/about/publications/annual-review-archives/innovate-magazine" target="_blank">https://slisweb.sjsu.edu/downloads/annualreviews/2010/2010slis_annualreview4-3m.pdf</a>] The alumni of SJSU iSchool graduated from an accredited, online SLIS program at a public university in California suggesting a practical, self-directed population, possibly with a liberal outlook. The SJSU iSchool website regularly reports on alumni in a variety of professions, from public libraries to archives to law libraries to prisons. Given the size of the alumni population it can be assumed that alumni occupy positions in many, if not all, areas of LIS workplaces. While not mentioned, due to the circulation of the newsletter to SJSU iSchool graduates, there is a suggestion that authors are also SJSU iSchool graduates.[18. San Jose State University School of Information. (2016). <em>Information School Alumni</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Alumni Newsletter" href="http://ischool.sjsu.edu/people/information-school-alumni">http://ischool.sjsu.edu/people/information-school-alumni</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter</strong>: As graduates of a SLIS program, it can be assumed readers possess general knowledge of LIS subject matter and specific knowledge of their area of specialization.[19. San Jose State University School of Information. (2016). <em>Information School Alumni</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Alumni Newsletter" href="http://ischool.sjsu.edu/people/information-school-alumni">http://ischool.sjsu.edu/people/information-school-alumni</a> ] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Authors should keep in mind this newsletter is produced by, and is about, the readers, the alumni of SJSU iSchool. Submissions covering SJSU iSchool alumni and their activities are suggested. <strong>Last updated</strong>: April 27, 2016 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
