American Indian Library Association. (2016). <em>Publications</em>. Retrieved from <a title="AILA Publications" href="https://ailanet.org/about/publications/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://ailanet.org/about/publications/</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations</strong>: Members are located throughout the United States and Canada.[17. American Indian Library Association. (2016). <em>About</em>. Retrieved from <a title="About AILA" href="http://ailanet.org/about/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://ailanet.org/about/</a>] The newsletter is written in English[18. SerialsSolutions. (2016). American Indian Library Association Newsletter. <em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1401987299832/124732" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1401987299832/124732</a>] and contains library terminology. Readers are aware of the different tribes and expect articles to identify specific tribes and/or bands. Some cultural considerations that authors need to consider may be using the correct term to identify American Indian people. Some readers may object to the term American Indian or Native American. This publication uses the term American Indian in their articles.[19. American Indian Library Association. (2016). <em>About</em>. Retrieved from <a title="About AILA" href="https://ailanet.org/about/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://ailanet.org/about/</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics</strong>: "Members are individuals and institutions interested in the development of programs to improve Indian library, cultural, and informational services in school, public, and research libraries on reservations." Readers are tribal librarians, are associated with tribal libraries or have an interest in issues that affect library and information services for American Indian people. Some readers may be educators in a Native community, or public librarians working with Native people. It is assumed that many readers have LIS degrees. Readers value respect of American Indian communities and their drive to be self sufficient. Factors that aid in independence, such as programs to assist under served American Indian tribal members located on the reservation are important issues and a conduit for receiving that information is the <em>American Indian Library Association Newsletter</em>.[20. American Indian Library Association. (2016). <em>About</em>. Retrieved from <a title="About AILA" href="https://ailanet.org/about/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://ailanet.org/about/</a>]€ <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter</strong>: Readers are familiar with library terminology and the use of LIS jargon is present but does not dominate in the publication. Articles are written for a professional, educated audience.[21. American Indian Library Association. (2016). <em>About</em>. Retrieved from <a title="About AILA" href="https://ailanet.org/about/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://ailanet.org/about/</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> <em>The American Indian Library Association Newsletter</em> is a respected publication read by librarians and other interested individuals who provide services to American Indian people. Authors writing for this publication will gain recognition within the American Indian LIS community. If published, authors will have a small but concentrated audience of American Indian library professionals. Authors have a good chance of being published if they involve tribal colleges and library-related issues in some way. When writing for this newsletter, it is suggested that authors include tribal affiliation of American Indian people. Authors that are interested in submitting articles may consider topics such as the future for tribal libraries, improving services for traditionally underserved populations, or articles regarding reading and American Indian children. <strong>Last updated</strong>: April 12, 2019 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
